A Different Dream
Oil on Board. ©Susan Helen Strok 2013.
A woman sits in a rustic chair by the sea, gazing out at the water while the sun rises (or sets). She is holding a crystal ball, her look one of longing and introspection. Wrapped in a blue shawl, she is wearing a dress of pearls and scales . Is she dreaming of being a mermaid - or is she a mermaid, sitting momentarily on land, dreaming of things a real woman might do?
