Sacred Spring, Sweet Dreams

Sacred Spring, Sweet Dreams : Paul Gauguin
This painting is one of many created during his time in Tahiti. I like this painting because of the colors and the scenery which is different from a lot of the artists we have studied in class. the woman on the left seems to have a halo around her head and I wonder if that is leaning towards a spiritual sense. The colors are muted except for the orange clothes and reflections in the water. The personal story of Gauguin in Tahiti is very interesting and maybe thats why I like the painting.
