My friend Ellen -- who I hadn't seen for a long time -- visited the studio, chose some of these colors and helped paint the first layer. We painted outside, next to the river, with the canvas lying flat on a table. We talked about our lives. The experience felt reminiscent of a quilting bee.
The title -- "A Woman's Work" is a bit tongue in cheek since the checkered pattern I painted over the first layer isn't done. And it never will be.
