Miss Brooks Lonely Vacation

 
As I was painting this piece it began to take on a story to me. A story of a woman who has never married, she is British and perhaps has been a nanny and has spent her whole life in service to others. Now she is older and taking some time for herself. Where has time gone? She is alone on a beautiful island....The colors are subtle and soft in this painting. Giving it a vintage feeling. 8x10 oil on board 2008 $210.00

a lovely, contemplative painting. I like the story too.
