Girl at a Sewing Machine

Hum of the sewing machine, late afternoon light, biting your lip in concentration, voluminous white material running beneath your hands.

The girl’s story is unimportant. Being in Hopper’s vibrant, color-saturated world at that one moment in that one room is enough.

  1. This reminds me of a women of Noble character from Proverbs 31
    She selects wool and flax
    and works with eager hands.
    and
    When it snows, she has no fear for her household;
    for all of them are clothed in scarlet.
    She makes coverings for her bed;
    she is clothed in fine linen and purple.
