WIP-My Immortality




60cm x 60cm
Oil on Linen

First of a series of works I want to do with my daughter and her 15 year old friends...I want to capture the essence of youth when every cloud brought a new dream...when life promised unsurpassed delights and wonder...when life was exciting and frightening...days of dreams!!!!

Thank you Wendi...it took 100 photos to get this one realy dreamy shot with the sky reflecting in her eyes...I'm obviouslly no photographer, plus having my daughter giggling her head of for most poses didn't help...but yeah...I really enjoyed this work, my success with this one is that I know every little curve and shade on that face...I don't know how I will do woth kids I'm less familiar with...but I'm looking forwards to it.
Thanks so much for stopping by!!!!

Ah Vesna, to remember these wonderful days of innocence!

What a wonderful capture. That rosebud colour the essence of youth and the fresh green of the foliage surrounding her creamy complexion is ‘dreamy’ indeed! You are on a winner here. Just beautiful!
Can’t wait to see more.

Thank you for those kind words Vesna. I can truly say that now with my paintings in for the CASS 'Art of Sydney Awards' to kick off 2009 it's a load off - much like sitting for exams for the HSC - you have done your best and now are awaiting the results. Will find out whether all 6 of my paintings make it in tomorrow, so that makes for a nervous Perugina!

This painting of yours is my favourite so far, I am always excited by the next, for "your best painting is always ahead of you!"
(((HUGS)))
