Love her French clogs sitting at the end of a child’s lanky calf. Lovely to see her everyday native dress and nice to see a child’s skill. What a huge amount of red on her cheek. Did she fall into a rouge pot? Or did he? 🙂 This reminds me of many things–Gaugin plus impressionists and some of the popular culture type art of the 1960’s-1970’s. I love that he captured that concentrated expression that stitchers get when problem solving a fussy seam. She may be counting… I love that you said she may be counting. I see that now too! Why the red face? Thank you for posting a Canadian artist! Being Canadian myself I was happy to learn about this artist for the first time! Morning sun shining on her back…She may be getting warmed up and red cheeks ensue..There is a tendency in some types of skin to turn red easily. Two of our blonde grands have that. I did as a child too and yet my hair is brown.. I enjoy this painting.. so relaxed and emotionally easy to slip right into. Balance of bright and subdued colors are very pleasant. I believe it is called a “ruddy complexion”. I wonder why she is knitting right in the middle of the garden? I too smiled a the wooden clogs! Like all those people who walk and text now!
