What a masterpiece!!  This painting has it all!  I love the color contrasts, but most of all I love the perspective which makes this so unique!  WOW!

Thank you very much, Patricia. It was mostly the hair that was difficult. To paint blond hair going gray.

Thank you. I understand not having words. I hardly ever do for others' artworks. It's hard for me to say more than you have said: "I can't begin to tell you how much I like this..."

I remember evenings like this on a lake in the Adirondacks. The point of view is nicely done. I rather like that she seems to have her camp light on, behind her and he is sitting by the fire - two different means by which to provide comfort in the wild.

So you caught the lighting effect. Two main light sources.

Definitely. It's a great effect and individualizes the two campers - each with a separate perspective and each with separate thoughts.

Thank you, Patricia, very much. Funny, but not really funny: the model is my wife. She was very ill with a viral infection. I'd just brought her back from the VA emergency room where they kept her for three hours with two saline IVs and nausea medication along with anti-biotics. She had to lye on our love seat for the rest of the day and night. I painted her in and just kept adding the other elements to come up with this. I see it as she's dreaming of me (although the man is not a self portrait) and the man is dreaming of her. Yes, you're right in a way: she was as comfortable as it was possible to be.
