Faun's Repose

The moment between the inhale and exhale amongst a forested scene where a faun gently rests, either before or after an act, embodying a male sensuality and virility of youth. I find myself lying beside it in the studio, reflecting the pose, after a long painting session that has exhausted me. The troubles of the world outside the reposed faun seem distant and muted.
