A drawing inspired by the portrait, "At the French Windows. The Artist's Wife, 1897" by L.A. Ring. What drew my gaze in this painting was the graceful flow from Sigrid's shoulder, through the folds of the fabric of her sleeve, to the curves of her arm and hand. To draw upon the theme of spring beauty, I imagined her collecting the flowering branches of the trees.
