I have no idea how she ended up out West, but the diagonal line of red with black seemed like a tent flap.  So why the iron railing from a balcony in Provence? Maybe it's reminding her of that day she foolishly gave up a modeling gig for Matisse.

This is the larger version of a study. By increasing the size from 11x14 TO 30x40, the painting completely changed. This one has lots of texture in the ground and paint layers and differs slightly from the original in color and design. I love painting this big!

This painting really works for me in that it's angular, has minimal colors and the face is slightly abstract. It seems that she is between activities or thoughts, wholly comfortable in the moment.
