"Wistful," The second in my Italian Scene series.

A young woman looks out of a window at the unseen activity below. Does she want to join them? Is she waiting for first sight of friend approaching? Or at someone leaving. It is for the viewer to decide. Only her wistful look is a clue to her thoughts.

This is the second painting in my new Italian series. I saw her looking out of the window, across the street from our Florence apartment. A few moments before she had been talking on her cell phone.

As usual, I took several consecutive photos and developed this painting from multiple images. The slanted format took some working out, but I feel it strengthened the focus on the figure.
