Sunday Serenity #159

Lydia Crocheting in the Garden at Marly
1880 by Mary Cassatt
Oil on canvas
26 x 37 in (66 x 94 cm)
Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York

This painting by Mary Cassatt has several things lending itself to serenity for me. First I love Cassatt's work and every one I've encountered has had a soothing or joyful effect upon my spirit. Second, I find the colors in this one especially soothing. and finally the woman in the picture is crocheting and that (along with needlepoint and cross stitch) induce serenity in my. I often refer to them as my Xanex or Valium.
