From a dream of a few of months ago… I started this work and got off of it as exhibition work and juried work took all my time these pass few weeks… not to mention all the frames I had to make for many of the above work…
This piece was of a dream of a beautiful run away female slave that was badly abused by her southern plantation owner… before the Civil War… she ended up running away to an island off the Carolinas on the eastern seaboard of the southern states (USofA)… the dream was so real and I played a part in her escape.. but I don’t remember what happen to me in those olden times… but Seanna lived out her life in peace and love raising a large family… thats all I remember about this beautiful dream that played out like a movie… funny like that how dreams can enchant us to paint…. I finally finished this piece of work… note how I added texture to her body to show the wounds she suffered as a slave… (a sad chapter in our history of USofA)

As a self-taught working artist, I have always believed that we are all blessed with gifts. It’s up to us to recognize and develop them; to what extent we will use those gifts to benefit others that cross our path.

    What a stunning emotional portrait of a beautiful slave girl and a profound and meaningful dream. I love the way have translated your dream into this work. The paradise beach behind marks a new and safe beginning but the wounds on her skin reflect her sad past. A beautiful sensitive portrayal from your beautiful heart and imagination dear Rey. Wonderful to see you and your work. Have a beautiful day. xxx

    This is a great painting! One of my very favorites you have painted! Very expressive! I like the expression on her face. You have captured your character beautifully, and the history of her life as a slave, then as a free woman! Enchanting and brilliant!
