This first painting, a pastel, was made in 1996 trying to capture the image of a dream.






The figure in blue returned, unbidden, when 10 years later I put my hands into some clay—a medium I had not touched since childhood—and a similar form started to reveal herself. I even made a little blue ceramic hat (not shown here). This time the story changed.







The oil painting the adept developed very quickly. Even though the original composition did not change much, the atmosphere and feeling of the image transformed drastically.
