I had to paint it because, for some reason, I had this connection with her. I could feel her frustration from working with her tapestry and only having a certain time to work on the detail of the piece. I can't imagine what it would have been like using a setup like she had.
At first I thought the view behind her was a window, but upon closer observation, I realized it was a mirror and the view was a reflection from the other side of the room. I had a wonderful time working on this piece and it will be displayed proudly in my studio. I would love to give credit to the blogger that I found out about this from, so if your out there and read this, please leave me a comment so I can let everyone know where my information came from and link your blog. Have a great day and a wonderful weekend.
