Today I painted something I saw in my sleep. Usually the imagery in my dreams is very realistic, the only way I know I am dreaming is by the change in color (usually the colors are a bit washed out, and dreamier with darker darks and too light lights) or by certain breaches from reality. I don’t really remember what I was dreaming about in particular, but right before I woke up I saw these rolling clouds with eyes. This painting is literally the exact imagery I saw in my dream (except without the movement). I have never recorded or depicted imagery from my dreams before, nor have I had dreams with such ‘trippy’ images.  I find this all quite interesting, and wonder if I can further explore this. I also wonder if there is any symbolism at play in this imagery. Anyhow, I hope you enjoy today’s work and are having a glorious Saturday.
