Mid-century impressionist portrait of a woman in a brown dress and cream lace collar.  It's signed and dated in the lower left corner.  It's an unusual painting in it's simplicity, the woman who has blue grey eyes and short strawberry blond hair looks at the artist with a whisper of a smile. It's one of those paintings that would look incredible next to some dark furniture....
