ABOUT: Hidden Hearts
Portrait of happy women sitting in a circle looking at an empty spot. The needlework is a personal repent for my former belief of women being happy and settling for less in life than men usually do. The women are happy about the ”small” domestic things, bringing happiness into a family home, baking, sewing, showing appreciation for childrens’ development and growth. Instead of investing in a career or a mission in the public domain.
The women seen in the embroidery are all happy about something invisible and presumably unimportant. Later in life, I learned this invisible thing is equally important and just seemingly small stuff.
