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.

Thank you, Sheila. I can’t get over the intricate and ever-changing patterns in these mittens. I find myself just staring at them…so amazing.

I’ve been wanting to finish the painting all week and something has come up to delay it.
Aren’t the mittens gorgeous? I’ve just done one of my first pair and started on the second one. They are amazing!
