Laundry Day by Eric Bowman

How often do you see a painting that makes you FEEL something? This painting Laundry Day stands out to me in so many ways… the woman in the pink shirt looks so hot and exhausted… you can feel the heat from that iron. I just want to walk up to her, offer her a cold glass of water and tell her to have a seat… “and I’ll finish the ironing for you”! The light, the dark shadows on the wall, whoa… Eric is one talented artist, and from what I’ve heard through the grapevine… the nicest guy ever. I look forward to seeing his work in person one day!
