Waiting and Watching!

I painted this for DPW's challenge this week,
which is to incorporate the wonderful color
called "Tangerine Tango" (the color of the year) in the painting.

For some time now,
I've wanted to paint a child,
anticipating the return from war,
of her father.
This challenge was a perfect opportunity.
So I dressed this little girl,
who is anxiously waiting at the window'
for her father's homecoming,
in a bright "Tangerine Tango" sweater.
