It's my mother's birthday today, so here is something I gave to her a while back (for Christmas, truth be told). It's a mousy take on Edgar Degas' Woman ironing (Blanchisseuse repassant) c.1882-86, now at the Reading Public Museum and Art Gallery in Reading, Pennsylvania. Degas' picture is oil on canvas; mine is acrylic on wood and the mouse is about life-sized. Note her MONOPOLY iron.
