1997, acrylic on canvas, 24x30 inches

"To have dreamed, to have loved with the
whole soul's might
To have looked for day when the day
was fled?"

Algernon Charles Swinburne

This painting also provided a great deal of struggle and even
now, I am not entirely satisified with the fleshtones or the
shadows around her eyes and nose. The photo of the
painting shown here is a placeholder until I can take a better
photograph of it
