I believe that this painting shows the same thing that May Geolot thinks that it shows. As a technique, I interpret individual objects rather than trying to assume what they are about by looking at objects that are related to them. As stated above, many people assume that this painting is about lonliness just because of the other paintings that Edward Hopper has created. I don't think this that this painting represents lonliness because, as May Geolot thinks also, the woman in the picture looks more eager instead of sad. I believe that the reasoning behind the fact that many people see this painting as depressing relates to his past paintings. I think that if people had not seen his previous paintings then maybe their ideas about "Cape Cod Morning" would be different. I had not seen his previous paintings until I researched him after listening to the podcast by May Geollot. Looking at his other paintings, it is apparant to me that he does have a habit of creating paintings that represent lonliness and depression. Because many of his past paintings were of this nature, viewers tend to think that his newer paintings will reference back to his older paintings.
