Helen Parsons Shepherd, in 1965, painted a picture called “Bus Stop”. This picture displays many characteristics and is very interesting because it can be deciphered many different ways.
The people are waiting at the bus stop because they want to go somewhere. The family in the middle, and their son and grandmother are waiting as well. The woman on the left is not part of this family, but perhaps a friend of the family who just happens to be there as well. I deem that all of the people in the group are going to church, because this portrait takes place a long time ago. Most families back then always used to go to church. They seem not depressed, but exhausted because it is fairly early in the morning. In fact they are so tired, the trip and the bus are not in their minds. They seem zoned out only noticing the cold and perhaps their surroundings.
The painter seems to use plenty of dark colours to make the illusion of a depressing scene. The lack of light also shows that either there are lots of clouds out or it is early or perhaps late out. The painter only wanted to focus the pictures and the back round is partially blurred out while around the family is fairly well detailed.
This picture was probably made to resemble sometime n the 60’s early morning, and in the spring. This is evident because there cloths seem to be 50’s-60’s time line. It might be early morning because it’s dark out and it takes place in the springtime because the snow is melting.
