Perspective Dreaming

Painting of a ceramic woman and a landscape of distant fields

What’s real? What’s deception? What is the sad-eyed woman trying to say? In this playful Renaissance scene, my mother, Louise Craven Hourrigan, toyed with classical motifs. The painting inspired early drafts of my poem, “Perspective Dreaming.” Originally published in the Fall 2014 issue of Water~Stone Review, “Perspective Dreaming” is included in Secret Formulas & Techniques of the Masters, now available from Brick Road Poetry Press and other booksellers.
