I've always liked this painting. Probably because it reminds me of my mom, who was a seamstress.

When I took my mom to Paris back in 2007, I made sure to get a picture of her standing in front of this painting at the Louvre. It was kinda shocking how small the painting is in real life. It's not much bigger in real life than it appears on my computer screen above.
