2019, Oil on canvas, 61 x 76 cm
Painted from life, this portrait is of a woman in a sensuous dark velevet dress who is waiting, lost in her thoughts. Her distant gaze alludes to a sense of wait, expectation and resignation. She is partly dreamy, partly sad, longing for something or someone who may not come. Her amber ring and its fossilised insect echoes her feeling of being trapped in her memories.
