    These Lady-cards are just great, Claudia. Perhaps I also like them so much, because I lately discover a love to contrast and to black, making the colors and light even brighter.

    I actually like doing laundry. Especially ironing. But I am very glad to be doing it in this era vs. beating clothes on a rock in a stream, or just brushing off dirt, as things used to be. And I wouldn’t take it up as a profession.. No sir.

    Thank you so much! And Yes, I know what you mean about contrast and black, the two best friends I have in making art, I think. I have always leaned toward clear divisions in my work (I mean, usually no fading one area into another but very delineated, with color, line, etc.). I don’t know why, maybe my nearsightedness. And as far as black, well, that color has the gift of making all the other colors more of what they are, I think. I love it.

    I quite like laundry except for ironing. I’m OCD about ironing so it takes me a long time. I try to avoid ironing at all now in order to sidestep the OCD being triggered. I do find, however, that laundry in this house is relentless. It was that feeling of being forever in the laundry cycle that I saw in the face of your figure. Projecting, clearly.

    I listen to audio books now when I iron and I find it keeps me working efficiently but not overworking each piece – I also can be overly focused on the creases adding or removing them…
