Here is (the part of) a poem that inspired the work:
“What dreams we have and how they fly
Like rosy clouds across the sky;
Of wealth, of fame, of sure success,
Of love that comes to cheer and bless;
And how they whither, how they fade,
The waning wealth, the jilting jade —
The fame that for a moment gleams,
Then flies forever, — dreams, ah — dreams!
~Paul Laurence Dunbar
I worked on this painting for many weeks…a little at a time. It’s self-portrait, a mirror and an explanation of my observations of self awareness. It’s a visual poem.
I hope you enjoy the work.
