Emerald Dreams

Emerald Dreams took me into a world of green that incorporated brushstrokes, textile texture, background, and atmospheric perspective in a figurative form of emotional realism. The sheen of satin played off the translucence of the sheer sleeve fabric, adding a sense of movement to the stillness of the figure.

And yet the figure itself moves, through the model's forward leaning movement, and just the slightest sense that her left hand is brushing the foliage at her fingertips.
