I saw this woman a few months ago cleaning a doctor’s office. I was struck by the beautiful light coming from the open door. Inside was dark and she was almost in silhouette. I could not get her image out of my head. So here she is in watercolor in a fairly large painting.
In Mexico, you see women with the revered string mop just about every day. They sweep and then mop. It isn’t as easy as it sounds. I’ve tried it a few times and I’ve given up. I don’t try anymore. Now Betty does it for me and I really appreciate her.
I just love the image as it is a celebration of our everyday lives. We should always appreciate these little gifts of a simple life, as they make us more human and more humble.
