And IMHO, the dress she is wearing is a style used in the 1940’s for maternity wear. The cat knows ! However, Wikipedia said nothing about his having offspring. His choice of colors makes the painting have a somber but peaceful atmosphere. WOW I love this. Very pretty Interesting that he painted only two women in his career. Miss Lucie Brown is holding something of a cloth, however it looks like a crumpled tissue. Looks like he tried many different subjects even though he was primarily a plein air painter. Love learning new things! Aaaaahhhhh a pussycat …. I LOVE pussycats. Stripey ones are especially nice. Looks a bit like a makerel tabby. Do you think the star cushion behind her back is quilted? Overall a nice comfortable painting. Nice choice. I enjoy your blog for machine quilting advice but also look forward to your choice of other art. Quilter with a cat. What could be more appropriate for me on a cold,wet, dreary November day. Thank you for all you do Well, apparently the old Chap was not a bad looking fellow, wondering who the Lady with Cat was, hmmmm? Did not find out what year this painting was done, hmmm? I like the pillow in the near background, love the cat! Thanks, Lori for giving this old mountain woman a lesson in fine art! Thank you for sharing the wonderful fine art! What I can imagine I see is “kitty” twitching that ear each time her elbow barley brushes into it. This would have been my cat Fuzzy. He had to be in the middle of anything I did. I like the unusual view. Comments are closed.
