Sara in the Window

In this painting I was interested in the silhouette of the figure against the midday light of the window. After the initial impact of this strong contrast, some of the details of the figure begin to emerge. In addition, I have always been interested in sheer fabric draped over the figure. Here the sunlight breaks forcefully through her flowing blouse. In the window I tried to use some stippled brush work to indicate that it was in need of cleaning. The building behind is the Ferndale post office.
