Sweet Dreams! From Vision to Series

I woke up one morning with a vision of a lady in a red dress ballroom dancing across the floor. I slipped my feet into my slippers, darted into my studio, grabbed my sketch book and pencil to draw what my subconscious had just presented to me. My initial thought was “this is going to be a challenge” because you never know if you can capture the true vision of your imagination. ballroom no.1 sketchBut, there it was! The sketch. I did it! At least to a certain degree. I had a sketch of what woke me upon my bed. Now, all I needed to do was paint it. But how should it look? Will I paint it in watercolor, oil or acrylic? And on what surface? Because of the playful nature of the picture that filled my mind, I chose watercolor on Aquabord. The dress was vibrant and I could display it in many ways. I drew the image onto my surface and began to paint. After a few hours–I got it! That’s it! I had accomplished capturing a vision upon my bed and now it was on my chosen canvas–Aquabord. I was ecstatic! I had a dream in my hand: A vision crystal clear. I probably stared at this work for hours taking breaks here and there. I know it sounds a little silly, but this was a personal accomplishment. I had reproduced a midnights dream, which became a series of unique little paintings I could paint forever and that literally tickle me every time I create one. ballroom no.1This one vision turned into a group of fun and exciting works, each painting having its own unique dance and drama that has entertained even the distant art lover. Who ever dreamed up the phrase “Sweet Dreams” – Thank you!
