The contrast between the shadowed curves of the bodies and the misty vagueness of the backgrounds in Pénot's paintings creates such a lovely, ethereal, magical atmosphere.
And the wispy hair curling endlessly away from the faces.
The shadows and the light and the grain.
Bodies in alien skies.
Smoke curled around sleeping lives.
I usually lounge on clouds too.
