Book of Beginnings

Illusions, Aspirations & Dreams
inspired by Nora Sallows
acrylic on 7" by 9" canvas board
nfs in collection of artist

This painting is one that grows on me. I like it better every time I see it. It is very similar to one of Nora Sallows original nude series of 20 from May 2006, but bolder in color with much different brush strokes. Ms. Sallows is a well know and respected Ohio portrait and wildlife artist who's web site is Dancing Light Studio. Her painting can be seen here.

How beautiful is youth! how bright it gleams with its illusions, aspirations, dreams! Book of Beginnings, Story without End, Each maid a heroine, and each man a friend!
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Time sure flies!
