Bev She is lovely and she looks young, so I guess her eyes can take it. Very pleasant painting but I hurt for her..not sure why…However, appears to be a repair maybe, instead of an original project. The colors are soothing IMHO. Anybody discern the part to the left? bed/pillows? Can’t tell what that is exactly. To me it looks like a baby or child — the red being it’s cheek; the red makes me think perhaps the child is ill and she is sitting up watching, filling her time with mending Sweet. I am with Bev Hastings especially at this point in my life! What a sweet Mother sitting in a dim room so her child could sleep peacefully. She’s still young with good eyes. Just lovely.
