Hope strikes a whimsical pose about two hours before sunset, enveloped by a sheer cloth blowing in the wind. Clouds, cloth, and oyster shells serve to create interlocking patterns in this composition. The curves and pleats of the cloth envelope her nude body; framed by the smooth shape. Her gesture is whimsical; her body merges with the billowy white. The spontaneous image communicates an immediacy that is universally understood.
A soft shadow on the ground connects her visually, though we cannot see where her feet are planted. She seems to glow on the overcast day; an emotional and physical light in the muted colors of the seascape.
