Appropriate for her life’s passion but mysterious, too (medicine has come a long ways since then, thankfully). Looks to be that she was 84, that was quite a good lifespan in those days, so I am surprised that she was that age. That is so beautiful ! Very talented ! and her kitty is keeping her company.. This is my favorite of all. Love the sun rays, the perspective, the color. I sent it to my Danish friend on Facebook. Just think how hard it was to create beautiful work without the advantage of great lighting and tools…..we have amazing women to emulate I always enjoy every art piece you share with us. This is one I’d love to own. The light is fantastic…amazing talent. this is just amazing–the luminosity on the china cup, the little Siamese cat’s proportions, the fold marks in the table cloth, the glare she captures–such detail and richness and yet the beautiful stream of light coming in from the window bends strangely. i think it must have looked exactly like that because she has captured everything so perfectly. i just love this one!!! I love it too! It is a little stolen moment to sew in the beautiful light! I love this. Had to put this one on pin interest gave you credit. I just love the light used in this painting. Really beautiful. Thank you for bringing us fine art in sewing. Isn’t it pretty! Just love that she was able to steal away and stitch for a few minutes in the perfect light! Comments are closed.
