New Project ~ Old World

Some of you know that I started knitting last year and have completed 7 and a half pairs of socks and a hooded sweater and scarves and a hat and now I’m working on a pair of fingerless Latvian mittens. For those of you who don’t know what a Latvian mitten is here’s a couple of pictures…

And what does this have to do with painting you may wonder? After falling in love with these Latvian mittens I did some research on the old Latvian traditional dress. Being inspired by all things lovely I decided to do a series of old world traditional costumes.

Here’s the beginning of my first painting …Three Women in France ~ Old World


I’m going to keep this very loose…very impressionistic.
