in the light of day

fever dream. oilbar and pencil on canvas. 30 X 40. 2007

Finally! It's daylight. And although daylight is doing some horrid washing-out of the lovely pinks and purples of her lovely profile, at least there is a picture. She's done. It sounds weird and conceited, but I am so so in love with this painting, particularly the shadows of her sweater. I don't really know how it happened, but it looks good! She's hanging over Cassidy's table, and her hair is just the same colour of the warm mahogany. She sings. Welcome, welcome.
