This painting is influenced by the great Mary Cassatt entitled 'Young Mother Sewing'. This genre style is similar to any ordinary setting but the child and the mother are deliberately suited to the style of Mary Cassatt one of great Impressionists. Her particular artistic manner depicted women and children. My painting lacks the 19th century style of clothing and hair but maintains the sentiment and warmth in a relaxing setting. Far from the stomping grounds of Ms. Cassatt, this terrace is located in Santorini, Greece. I chose this as my setting for the bright light and shadows casting through the wicker chairs and trees onto the floor of the terrace. The child though engrossed watching her mother sew is mildly captivated by the cat stretching under the wicker chair.
