The lady in Green

This is a 1/4 sheet watercolor painting from a 1925 photograph of an office party. The room is filled with young women and mostly older men, and all of the women were together, except this one, she was over to the side, not next to any of them. Her hair was not bobbed and styled like everyone else’s, and she looked like she had something on her mind.  I was very taken with her and this is actually the 5th time I’ve tried painting her; I am finally happy with her.

    Really sweet watercoloring work, I wish I could do that in plaster half as good as you.

    Mimi, i find this incredibly beautiful! It is hauntingly beautiful if i may say this. It captures me… i can see why you felt compelled to paint her.
    I think this is my favourite now… and who know what lies in wait!
