The dream - Oil Painting by Barry Jackson

The Dream
Oil on Canvas
48 x 67 cm

A beautiful girl asleep... there is an inherit beauty in how a beautiful girl rests, she seems so satisfied, so happy... so... I wish I had the right words to describe the feeling that this painting tries to capture.

This oil painting is for sale, but unfortunately I do not have a payment portal open yet. Please feel free to mail me if you are interested in purchasing this painting.

Oil on canvas - 61 x 75 cm

It's always fascinating how people flock to the water's edge when the sun hot, and it's fascinating how we are willing to strip down to just about nothing on the beach - in front of a thousand people... but would be embarrassed if 10 people saw us in the street wearing only our underwear!
This painting is done in the studio from photos and drawings done and taken on a hot afternoon at Boulders beach in Simons Town.
