A Midsummer Night's Dream

This is my latest painting. I actually felt a bit sad today when I finally signed it. I enjoyed being totally lost in it for days. The inspiration for this piece came to me after watching The Great Gatsby a few weeks ago. It's certainly a beautiful-looking movie from the set to the clothing. I remember seeing it about 25 years ago and being totally taken by Robert Redford, the the back drop, the set , and the clothing never noticing much about the acting or how slow moving it was and the almost funny dramatic close ups that you never see in today's films.
A Midsummer Night's Dream is 16x20 on stretched cotton/linen.
