Dreaming in blue and ochre
18 x 36
Oil and acrylic paint on canvas
Inspired by the music of Frederic Chopin.
At first I had an elongated horizon line on the canvas as a part of a horizon series.
Enchanted and energized at the same time, I found myself daydreaming while listening to his etudes and nocturnes. I kept a drawing of a young woman done during my academic studies and decided to add it to the plain picture. Then the little golden boy from the era bygone, with a sailboat on his mind. Time past, time future. It evolved. The bird’s eye view symbolizes hope.
