From a Dream
Maybe I ate too much on Thanksgiving, or the after dinner drinks really did a number on me. But since last Thursday, I've had some interesting dreams. One where I'm walking through a garden that reminds me of Costa Rica but it's really Spain or Chile (you know how you just know this in dreams), under a trellis filled with vines with flowers that are blooming as I walk through. The air is soft and humid but not thick. Leaves and hints of flowers are close and saturated, then distant and smoky. I couldn't stop thinking about it all weekend so I worked it out on the canvas and created this new painting entitled "Free Spirit".
