"Leisure Learning"

acrylic on hardboard
I love it when I learn something new while collecting information for a painting. I have always loved this painting. I hadn't realized until now that the artist painted this model several times in almost the exact same position draped leisurely across the furniture in her pattered room. I was actually trying to look up the title using Google when I continually pulled up the painting that I was not looking for. Here, where I live we have a catalog for continued adult learning entitled "Leisure Learning." I thought the title was appropriate given the two women observing the other at their own leisure pace.
