    Art Description:

    Large format oil painting of a woman from the 1960s feeling the sun on her face. Her closed eyes generate a serene feeling. I wanted her expression to radiate her inner life; the silent process of thinking to oneself. Thus the title's inference to "reverie" ( a state of being pleasantly lost in one's thoughts; a daydream.) the portrait is larger than life and has a blue underpainting which shows through in places giving the otherwise warm skin a sense of its inner vascularity. the photos below show the actual scale

     

    Medium Used: Oil on Canvas

    A body of work should not be a cadaver evidencing life that was but rather the flash-point for life which ignites anew on each renewed encounter.
