New Wool, Old Spinster

I am fascinated by spinning, and though this lady is really not an "old spinster" she is an industrious woman in a country where wool is still spun at home and by hand, and in this case on a hand-held instrument. Her family's warmth entirely depends on her skill.  The most spinning I have done has been, so far, with words and watercolors rather than  with wool.

This watercolor was fun to do.  I just love painting real folks at work.
