Covid Art 51: Silver Lake, 1888

I don’t know what the letter is about, but focus on the photograph, taken by a professional. No snappy fantastical background. Rather plain dresses. It looks like a pleasant mother and a pissed off daughter, both with a cleft in the chin. Maybe the daughter is angry because her mom purchased a bolt of cloth and made two dresses out of the same fabric, and this is not something the daughter wants to wear. Yes, it has happened to me. I picked out a beautiful paisley and made myself a dress when I was 12 years old, and flew to New York City (by myself) to visit Grandma Pauline, and lo and behold, she had a dress from the same fabric in a blue shade. I was so humiliated that I had selected a grandma-print. I never wanted to wear that dress again. I’m sure I pouted too!
