Mother's Corner

This is Mother's private corner in her large and elegant home. Lilacs in the blue vase on the table and sunlight beaming through the patterned lace curtains suggest a bright late-spring morning. The carved fireplace and the shapely chair with a rich aqua-patterned brocade suggest wealth and comfort. Embroidery in progress drapes over the chair seat, as if Mother has stepped away for a moment. Is that a portrait of Mother on the wall behind the chair? Unframed studio canvas. (Original)
