Women & Gardens during a Dry Spell by Theodore Robinson (1852-1896)

.A breezy cool front came through our area today, but still no rain. The dryness reminded me of the garden paintings of American Impressionist Theodore Robinson, where women appear tending the gardens & constantly at the well for more water. Thought I would share them with you.

On American Water by Theodore Robinson (1852-1896)

.Here are 3 of my favorite water paintings by American Impressionist Theodore Robinson. My very favorite is the wonderful boy fishing. I know it is not a woman, but I just cannot help myself.

A Woman on the Water by Theodore Robinson (1852-1896)

.
I finally remembered a woman on the water by Theodore Robinson. This painting has everything, a woman in dressy clothing alone in a boat with a dog. Perhaps there is a fan, or a parasol, or some goldfish hidden in the bottom of the boat somewhere. You never know. The woman and her dog are both identified. Who could ask for more...
