Saturday Quote

This is an island, composed of Mary and me, her brush and my gloves, my aching and her gaze.  On her canvas, I become a healthy woman in blue and white.  Sun and brush heal me, brush and sun, and French birds in a French garden.”
– From Lydia Cassatt Reading the Morning Paper by Harriet Scott Chessman
