Painting - Watercolour
Watercolour of a young woman in an interior working at her sewing machine. This piece was inspired by memories of my mother who made a lot of our clothes.She made matching printed cotton summer dresses for my sister and I on a Singer sewing machine. They were beautifully crafted clothing. My mother had a real talent , she had learned her craft from her Aunt who was a seamstress and had brought her up after both her parents( my grandparents ) had passed away.
I remember the distant soothing sounds at night -the soft purr of the machine stopping and starting as we fell asleep . I later learned to sew and make my own clothes on that reliable old sewing machine.
In this watercolour painting the large bay window fills the room with light, and creates a glow around the woman lost in her task.
