"Floral on Battenberg Lace"
Oil painting on linen (36" x 24") From the archives SOLD
" I woke up this morning seeing the new curtains, plaid drapery with Battenberg lace insets, at the windows and the sun shining.
These curtains were my big project undertaken last week and warranted me buying a new Viking sewing machine. Let me tell you - sewing is not at all like the old days. Today it is a breeze to get the work done with a digital sewing machine. Maybe, I'll sew something else now. When I was a young mother I routinely designed and made clothes for myself and young sons.
This curtain sewing project has made me realize anew that my years of sewing is what gives the sense of measurement that comes easy in painting for me."
. . . . . Oh, I forgot to tell you that hanging curtains and drapes is as hard as it ever was.
