This painting, The Embroidery Lesson, is the last one to be painted in Texas. Many thanks to my friend and model Sally, and her sweet daughter, Ruby, for a great photo session which is providing me with wonderful material to paint from for years to come. These are the first paintings in a series I’m working on about peaceful pastimes and reflective moments. In this age of technology we tend to forget that we can spend quiet time with something other than a device in our hands. The way people used to enjoy leisure time, just a few decades ago.
