I painted this piece the other week. The first in my domestic series. It actually uses my midcentury kitchen furniture and an apron made by my great grandmother in the 40s or 50s. I wanted to do some pieces that were about the shift in womens work across the generations and the devaluation of domestic work in recent times. In our current culture all our tasks- cooking, cleaning, our kids, our parents are sold off to the lowest bidder. Hopefully I can get on to painting the rest of the series, sadly my rate of painting slows significantly when I am teaching early am seminary. And this painting took about 4 days at 4 hours a pop- so at about 1 hr a day or a little more- it's goign to be tough to go anywhere quickly.
