Mildred Bunting Miller, Woman in a Pink Dress
Miller's Woman in a Pink Dress is a sensitive and psychological portrayal of a young woman. Sitting outside, her profile is seen in close perspective. She is deep in thought and serious, perhaps vulnerable. Miller beautifully uses the medium of pastel to layer soft passages of light that create the warm, gentle pinks of her dress and complementary flickering green of the background trees. With a quiet intensity, Miller conveys the disparity between the discomfort of her thoughts and the serene atmosphere of a summer day.
