How thoughtless of me. I forget sometimes. smile The whole painting is shades of brown and tan. That's partly what makes it sad, I guess. At the very top of a hill, silhouetted against a gray sky, is a house with a couple of trees, and there is another house a little distance away--800 feet, according to the essay at the site. This is the background of the picture so the houses look small, as if some distance away. The bottom of the hill is a darker tan or light brown, the color or dry or dead grass. Around the house near the top of the hill is a lighter tan, as if the ground around has been cleared. Way down the hill, on the darker brown, is a girl wearing light-colored dress, almost white but more a very pale tan. The bottom of the dress, from which her legs are stretched, is the same brown of the dead grass. She has shoulder-length dark brown hair. Her body is twisted, with most of the weight on her right hip. She is looking up toward the house, her back to us. The top of her body is raised on her thin arms. I don't know what I would have made of this picture if I hadn't read the accompanying essay--maybe if I saw it in a large painting instead of a small square, I would realize that her arms are in a crawling position. Apparently she is crawling up the hill toward home, dragging her useless legs. HTH Cindy ____________________________________________________________________________________ Fussy? Opinionated?
