Continuing last week's theme of looking at pictures with images of work in and around the house, I decided to pick "knitting" this week. There weren't as many images as I had thought there would be over at Art.com. But here are the ones that caught my eye:
The first from one of my favorite painters, Bougeureau. How can you not love her beautiful skin and her bare feet?
Next, a woman knitting in the midst of other work. I forget that what I do for a hobby once had to be done "for real"--to have warm clothes or socks. Rather than an enjoyment it would have be another "to do". I don't know what she's knitting, but she's using 3 needles, like you do for socks. Maybe a sweater?
Then this painting because I love the composition of it, with the slash of blue of her apron running across the image, and the still counterpoint of her white head covering. The gray/blue in the background is lovely, too.
I love photography, and this photo caught my eye. Not least because it reminds me, just a little, of a Summa meeting where knitting has broken out:
And finally, a vintage illustration, just because I love them:
Happy Friday, ya'll!
