Portrait of a Woman:The Dreamer


Shauun, the Dreamer oil on canvas 16h x 20"w ©2009 C.L.Burgess

Before I left for my trip up north, I painted this portrait of one of our regular models, Shauun, who is just a stunning woman and also is an arts administrator by day.

This oil painting is one of those 3 hour sittings that I enjoy so much, because it allows for the complete focus or 'flow' situation. Some nights it seems like fifteen minutes instead of three hours of painting until these worn legs collapse back home to remind me.
