HER FACE REMAINS FILLED WITH CURIOSITY AND WONDER. "The woman in my painting is like a dreamer. She looks out of the canvas trying to escape from her reality, but she can't. Her reality is a small cafe with a stranger, who's talking to her about, maybe, nothing. I painted this bright painting to get the feeling of contrast between reality and perfect happiness or dream, which, I think, is so important in life. A smiling young woman, looking straight at the viewer and who knows what’s on her mind. While we can't see the other person in the picture, we know for sure that she's listening to someone talk. She is the observer, the one who is never tired of showing empathy for others. It’s like a long and sweet dream where we travel to some fantastic places that never existed in reality, and we enjoy ourselves there, so far away from our awake. This girl is one of those travelers." Eva | Painter
A striking artwork in the style of impressionism that depicts a portrait of a girl sitting in a cafe, listening to someone. Many colors with bold shades, like hard pink, green, purple, and white make the painting so dreamy.
There is one thing that makes this figurative painting interesting - it does not tell all about itself, it only allows the viewers to use their imagination. We can notice a soft trace of melancholy on her lips and so many shades and tints on her face. The green background and the lights over the cafe make the artwork’s atmosphere so dreamlike and idealistic. This painting shows the artist’s skill in creating vivid colors and unusual perspectives. The use of color, tone, texture, and brushwork all complement each other to create a stunning result.
