Sometimes things come from failure, this started out as a field with a house in the background. Ran the knife all over it, mushed it all around, saw an eye in the resultant mess...This is what followed...

Lovely! It reminds me of a dream state, all muted and soft.

This brings to mind a song I wrote a while back:

If I could only dream
I'd dream of yesterday
for that's the only time
I spent with you
and inside my dream
you would call my name
and things would never change
if I could only dream
if I could only dream again

If I could only dream
I'd see you every night
and you would always be
right by my side
and I'd have the chance
to say I love you so
and you would never go
away
if I could only dream again
I'd only want to dream of you.

Nice work Rob -- sometimes things come on the heels of a failure that are better than what we set out to do in the first place. This has a real mood and conveys the subject perfectly. Al

To me she looks enchanted into a stone ... untill the prince of forgivnes comes to free her up...pretty, Rob.

Very good use of texture, color and metalic reflection Rob,
I also like to have non finished work and use it in a new composition.

I like very much the smooth face of the dreamer,
beautiful work.:):):):):):)

excellent .

Dear Rob, Yours is a magical, although hardly repeatable, procedure, to paint artpieces: starting with a completely different subject and then inducing an happy accident to finally come out with a uterly different wonderful tribal outcome!
Gorgeous! I like it very much!

Thanks all for the thoughtful replies. Al, your song/poem was moving, speaking of loss and regret. AT-TA your observation of her being enchanted into stone ( and in my mind, perhaps underwater as well) comes close to my own view of it. Thanks again.
