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.

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.

* “ Dreaming in Blue and Ochre” was exhibited at the 84th Annual Exhibition, National Art League, NY and at the 74th Annual Audubon Artists Society Exhibition, Salmagundi Art Club, NYC
