"Dream Image #2"
8"x10"
Mixed media on stretched canvas

I dreamt this painting a while back, maybe a month or so, but just now had the time and inclination to put it down.  As with the first Dream Image piece I painted, it always seems like a better idea when I first wake up.  I know that they always look better in my dreams!  I also altered this piece a bit.  I added the green to it, and the third, horizontal line, intersecting the other two.  It seems that when I dream of paintings, at least the first two that I've awakened to remember and attempted to paint, have both been landscapes in as much as I paint them.  I wonder what that means? Should I be leaning towards the abstract landscape?  Hmmm, food for thought.

Oh Jeff, love love love this one. I want to touch it. The texture you achieve is just wonderful. Funny, I so love texture but when I paint I go for an ultra smooth look. Wonder what that is about?

Dreams of art, now that is wonderful. I'd like to have dreams of art......hmmmmmm.....do daydreams count???

Jeff, you've made me think today. Thanks
