She doesn't really look like she's suffering to me. She has a man to keep her warm.
Since flowers are blooming in the painting, I would like to assume it is a somewhat warm rain. It's not unusual for a couple to dress to the max when going out on the town in the U.S., but I'm not sure how they dress where this photo was taken. I probably should have done more research. One member thought she should be wearing a mini skirt, which I felt would be distracting, even though it might have been correct for the time period.
Never the less, I delivered the painting to it's new owner yesterday, and he loves it! He's giving it to his wife for Valentine's Day.
Thank you all for your helpful comments and opinions!!!
