I was on a tour bus in Portugal a few years ago, and I saw this old lady finish sweeping the front step of her house, turn and enter her home. It was only a moment, but the wonderful faded colours of her house, the sun, and her blue dress, made this an appealing composition for me. A simple domestic scene, where the colours are  key to the harmony of the painting. 7.5x5.5 inches.
