It's Sunday morning, time to post another painting featuring windows!
This one, "Flowers on the Windowsill" is by Swedish artist, Carl Larsson. He was a contemporary of the Impressionists. His wife Karin was also an artist. They created a lovely home for their family with lots of light and decorative elements. Tourists can still visit the home today in Sundborn, Sweden.
I like the light ,clean, fresh look of his interiors, usually with the family doing domestic tasks. In this watercolor, the knitting lying on the table and child watering flowers help us to appreciate and celebrate the beauty of the "ordinary" day.
Hoping each of you has a beautiful, if "ordinary", day!
