Face In A Dream

I had a very moving dream the other night. In it I had a vision of a woman, I felt her beauty and her strength. At first, I tried to capture it with a sketch but, I found myself having to paint her to pull more of the dream out of my head.  My mission was to find a way to express what I saw in my dream because dreams are so fleeting.  I am experiencing artistic angst trying to capture the emotion in her eyes.  I hope to complete her sometime this week.  
Have a wonderful Sunday. 



  1. I love your painting! I think it is so cool that you are painting something from your dream. I don't know that I've ever even thought of that. She is really beautiful! Happy creating and be sure to have fun!


  2. She looks great! And it is so hard to get the eyes right - I know that feeling of angst!

  3. Cool painting! Fantastic job on the face. I have the hardest time with faces. Great job! :)

  4. She is lovely! Dreams can be so powerful!

    Hugs. xo

  5. I don't know why exactly, but I just love that hair! Good luck in finishing her. Isn't it cool how dreams can be made into art?
