Description Take this kiss upon the brow! And, in parting from you now, Thus much let me avow-- You are not wrong, who deem That my days have been a dream; Yet if hope has flown away In a night, or in a day, In a vision, or in none, Is it therefore the less gone? All that we see or seem Is but a dream within a dream.
I stand amid the roar Of a surf-tormented shore, And I hold within my hand Grains of the golden sand-- How few! yet how they creep Through my fingers to the deep, While I weep--while I weep! O God! can I not grasp Them with a tighter clasp? O God! can I not save One from the pitiless wave? Is all that we see or seem But a dream within a dream?
Susi Galloway, Coeur D'Alene Idaho Member Since September 2006 Artist Statement My paintings reflect a fascination for the outdoors, breathtaking scenery, unique viewpoints, illusions and dreamscapes. I love strong contrasts, bold and vibrant colors. My favored subjects are opulent, vibrant scenery, weather, portraits and visionary/surreal imagery. I capture moments that seem like poetry, and strive to inspire joy for life, creativity, imagination and Illusion.
I work with traditional brush and paint, and I also paint with digital brush. I experiment with the old and the new, and enjoy exploring new creative media and frontiers.
I also enjoy bringing stories to life with vibrant and beautiful images, and specialize in children's, book, fantasy, sci-fi, mystery and horror illustrations.
