"Contemplation" is a painting that reflects a moment of quiet thought. The young woman that posed had left college and was disillusioned with her path forward in life. She was lost and was searching for direction as an aspiring artist. The palette of the painting, the gesture and the shrouded veil, all suggest this deeply private passage of time. The quietness of her thoughts while painting her were deafening.
