Anne at the Window
5 1/4" x 3" oil on linen 2013
This is the third painting on the theme that I've done in two years . All three are of specific individuals, but the situation is imagined. On the abstract level, I enjoyed using a limited color palette and developing a counterpoint between the flowing lines of the figures and the juxtaposing curves of the curtains.

A fourth work with a similar composition is another recent painting, Woman with a Large Envelope (see September 19th post). She's at a door rather than at a window, but the interplay between the curving lines in the figure, archway, and envelope remains very important to the structure and flow of the composition.
