Since my friends know that I love postcards of reading women, they ses reading women everywhere.
For instance, this young lady, who is actually considering whether she should read or not:
|Margaret Gilmore, c. 1845|
Erastus Salisbury Field
Or this self-portrait of Frida Kahlo, in which she is painting from her image in the mirror:
|Self-Portrait with Unbound Hair, 1947|
Does singing from a hymn book count as reading?
|In Full Voice (Singing His Praise)|
By Richard Sargent
Cover for The Saturday Evening Post,
March 7, 1959
Postcards sent by Bryon (the USA) and John (the UK).
All count and I love them, too!ReplyDelete
The first card makes me think - by the way she is watching - of a teenage child who has to go to school (with even more books - in her schoolbag, too many to hold in her hand) but who is prefering to think of other, non-school things :-)
The 3rd card, singing loud, could be me when no one is watching (be it that my BMI is a lot higher and I think I would wear turquoise and black clothes instead of red/pink/yellow (we had a concert of our Brazilian-songs-singing in a church we hired for that day, so that could explain the location).
Bryon, who sent me the first postcard, wrote more or less the same concerning the girl :)Delete
I hope you also sing loud when in your singing group!
Like I wrote recently, your collection must be huge now.ReplyDelete
