Blue Monday

Welcome to Edmonds Gallery where this week we have for your viewing pleasure the image "Blue Monday". This image harkens back to the time when the mode of washing clothing was done by hand and then they had to be dried by hanging them on the line out of doors and air dried. Ms Dance is known for depicting the things that women did to care for their families. Washing clothing was just one of the unending chores that had to be done in those days. Now days there are things that have to be done. What are some of the things that have to be done today that we do but do not especially want to do ?
