I found the photo at The American Gallery HERE However, Li ZiJian is listed as an Art Museum near Hunan, China Related 21 responses to “Seamstresses in Fine Art” Fabulous! Love it! The intense concentration. And the hands: love the hands! This will be all of us one day. The determination to still sew will remain within us always! She is so much the oriental version of myself, at this time and age, that it really hit me between the eyes. Great painting! I love this. Look at all the life lines, beautiful hands and sweet little knot, on the top of her head! She appears to be struggling, threading that needle. I can relate! Thank you, Lori, for sharing. Beautiful. That’s me, trying to thread a needle… That is just a wonderful painting. You know whatever she makes will be exquisite. Just superb..love it..glad to get to see it… Oh, That whole gallery is breathtaking… Li Zijian is the artist. See http://www.china.org.cn/english/culture/144665.htm Thank you!!! I did not see this!! There are no words to describe my feelings when looking at this painting. It brought tears to my eyes! Thank you Lori for sharing all the beautiful seamstress’ in art. I look forward to them each week. After a hard day, maybe working in the fields, this Grandma found her special time to do what she truly loved. Wonderful . Lois Borton. Tenacity is the perfect title for this image. Tenacity is synonymous with persistence, determination, and perseverance. Among its meanings is “the quality or fact of being able to grip something firmly.” I like to think that the subject is persevering through life in general, and, in the immediate moment, is gripping firmly to her sewing needle to attend to her task at hand. Yes….tears here…. Would be a dream come true to watch him work.. This is beautiful. Reminds me of my grandma, a Midwestern farm wife who sewed and quilted life-long. The community quilt frame was in her living room most of the time so we all started our lives crawling around under it! She lived to 92 and was active most of those years. What lovely memories! Doesn’t that prove quilting is healthy for you! 🙂 OH! What a wonderful painting! Thank you for sharing it. Comments are closed.
