Women and children on their cell phones or IPad’s?? How rarely do we see children and women sitting sewing:( together!! The Seamstresses always lift my spirits! I so enjoy seeing the paintings you share……Did you ever consider developing a book ] with all of these wonderful paintings of seamstresses? I would love to do that!! This is beautiful. So sweet. I love the colors, I love the hat, the faces. the setting Very lovely Lori, This is so lovely; I like others I am sure remember our own mothers & grandmothers teaching us how to embroider with tea towels, handkerchiefs, & other small “non important” pieces. As Lynda D. remarked what will be painted now with cell phones, I-Pads & other electronic media having taken over? Sad that this is lost. We can change that! Teach someone to sew! Thank you for sharing these pieces of art every week. The little girl is concentrating so hard. Thanks Lori for sharing. I wonder if she’s teaching her daughter how to Tat (? lost art). It’s a lovely painting. The little girl maybe was thinking that it’s not that easy to do. Thanks for sharing art. Thank you for your Saturday paintings. It is so fun to teach a young person sewing, and it is a reward for saying yes to an opportunity that may come up……another quilter I know now has developed a nice little bit of income from teaching children in her home so pass on the skills! Are you familiar with Mary Cassatt’s “Young Mother Sewing”? I have a print that hangs by my sewing machine. I love her work. Thank you for sharing these beautiful paintings. One of my favorites — and one of the first “Seamstresses in Fine Art!” Thanks for reminding me–maybe we’ll re visit it! I just recently found your blog–and I really enjoy it! I’ll have to look back for earlier Seamstresses in Fine Art. Comments are closed.
