Pajamas Watercolor

Pajamas, watercolor on paper, 2010 by Leora Wenger

The inspiration for this watercolor was a possible post on networking for my tech biz blog. The idea is many people who work at home would rather spend the whole day in pajamas than attend a networking meeting. I’m not sure this is obviously pajamas; my husband said a blanket? a jacket? before I pointed to the pajamas that were draped over a chair all week in plain sight.

If nothing else, it got me focused on a painting all week. I had been having artist’s block for several months.

Update: here’s the post on 10 Excuses to Avoid a Networking Meeting.

Funny that it was a post which unblocked the block. To me it looks like children's pajamas.

Leora says

"it looks like children’s pajamas" - good! They are actually worn out adult pajamas, probably modeled after children's pajamas. I bought them when my boys were little as a treat to myself at Nordstrom's (a fancy department store). They are now too "holey" to wear. But I love the pattern too much to toss them.

Mrs. S. says

Cute painting! And speaking as another WAHM, I can definitely relate to the feeling... :-)

Also, I'm glad to hear that you overcame your artist's block.

Ilana-Davita says

I had to check what "WAHM" means; thanks ladies.

Miriam says

there's nothing quite so comfortable as old pjs just before they are too holey to wear. I too thought they were kids pjs and it makes me want to go back to bed. But instead I'll go to an appointment which is another part of a WAHM's life.

Jill says

Very pretty. I'm glad you broke your artist's block!

Jew Wishes says

What a treasure those pajamas are, as is the beautiful painting.

Shabbat Shalom.

How creative of you to paint your much-loved pajamas! Definitely PJs! There are buttons and "sweet dreams" is all over them. :)
