Back in January, Linda over at Under the Gables did a blog post about the romance of laundry. She posted a bunch of wonderful images depicting the act of doing laundry. As most of you know I destest doing laundry, but I kind of like hanging laundry out on a clothesline. And I love depictions of clotheslines in art. When Linda first blogged about these images, somewhere in the back of my brain I recalled that I had post card of a great painting of a woman hanging clothes on a line, but I couldn’t remember where I put it. Last week I finally uncovered the card and decided to make it my Sunday Painting for the week. I haven’t posted a Sunday Painting since before we went to Thailand so it is about time I get back on schedule and return to this regular weekly feature.
The title of this painting is particularly appropriate since Linda’s blog is “Dedicated to Discussion of Women and their Work.”
