Summer Bloomers was a joy to paint because I have a special fondness of old farms and the people who may have once lived in them. Growing up with four sisters gave me the idea of how a wash day back then would look. Washing took place outside the old farm house porch. A clothes line full of young women's bloomers would be hanging in the early morning on a typical hot summer day.
