Artist's Description

Tribute to Womanhood

A second Collaboration with Anthea and Reynaldo.

Dreaming of Him is 12 Painting/Poem/Drawing of our Tribute to Womanhood Series of 40 paintings/drawings/poem collaboration, and the second in our mini series Woman in Relation to Man.

For the next eight uploads we will be looking at women in relation to their men from many different perspectives. Even if a man is not present in the painting we will depict the woman’s feelings for and towards her man.

Reynaldo’s beautiful painting Dreaming of Him inspired my poem. It is such a great honour and pleasure to work with Reynaldo on this Collaboration as he is a brilliant and highly gifted painter and beautiful human being.

Paintings: Reynaldo
Poem: Anthea

Dreaming of him

Dreaming of him
makes her feel beautiful
Seeing his image
in her minds eye
Filling in the detail
the line, colour and form
He takes shape in line first
and shading of light and shade second.

Sweet words of love
vibrate through her mind
and send her heart dancing
Beating to a new rhythm
one that she has never known before.
She can now see context,
place and see how raw history has lead to now.

Seeing new meaning
that comes from her womanhood knowing
that something so strong
can never be wrong
To be able to see with clarity
and know with surety
that this feeling that builds with
each day is been fed by reality
Where reality skips and plays
and takes over dreams by its majesty

Where reality use to bite
now it kisses her with desire
and no longer bruises her
but tenderly seduces her
into a consistent dance of
passion and tenderness
that takes her dream to a new level
a time, place and scene where she can revel.

Could this be heaven on earth?
Not heaven built on idealism
but heaven built on lived known experience
where the maturity and wisdom
finally come together in perfect balance
that creates beauty from inside out
and that he can see
embrace and honour.

Where admiration and love are
the first ingredients of their desire
and knowing is pulse of their fibre
and she dreams of the days to
explore and reinvent the dreams of him
dancing, forging bringing them into reality

Mutual voice, mutual admiration, mutual
stories spoken and heard
that lead to communication of the highest order
where broken hearts can heal
and live deeper then ever before
Because beauty is based on their truth
and seeing each other as they really are…

Dreaming of him fills her mind
and with grace hope and desire for him
She smiles….
