|No. 13 She Speaks For Herself|
She's been in my dreams for awhile. You may see a little different style, I call it my painterly style. I notice that I try to stretch myself a little, and then I go too far, and then I go back to my old ways and then I start over and try to stretch myself again. Do you do that? It seems a safe way to proceed.
What I see in this portrait is a prototype of things to come. In my dreams, she's a large oil painting- painted from a live model standing by a camilla bush. She's only a twinkle of that but it will come to me someday.
I've given myself until 70 to be famous. I figure I will need the extra attention by then. So in the mean-time, I'm just making my way to stardom one painting at a time. I expect that there are 1000 paintings between this one and the one that will hang in a museum.
If you live long enough, you may see it too.
