Dreams are Whispers of the Soul ~ Pastoral Dreams ~ Paint Party Friday Week 9, Year 3



Stormy Sensuous Seductive Hypnotic Clouds, a picture worth an intense dream or painting ? Took this photo last year during stormy weather.

Note : At the end of this post I've embedded a Youtube Video of a classic tango of 1926 by Nat  Shilkret. David Lynch used this musical piece in his Dior ad " Lady Blue Shanghai " starring Marion Cotillard. Please do give it a listen while you read this post, it somehow transports you to another time and place, quite romantic. It is one of my favourite tangos and if you like the oldies like I do, I'm sure this tango will become one of your favourites as well O,O





"Painting is a metaphor for control. Every choice is mine...The canvas, the colour. As a child, I had neither a sense of the world nor my place in it, but art taught me that one's vision can be achieved with SHEER FORCE OF WILL. The same is true of life, provided one refuses to let anything stand in one's way." Klaus Michaelson ~ "VAMPIRE DIARIES" 


Well, I can safely say I've been quite loyal to the quote, about 50% of the time that is; occasionally straying away from my painting whenever my husband and son return home from their work on their 2 week leave. Usually we like to try to fit in a little getaway while he's in town as well as spending time together as a family so needless to say time flies by quickly and before you know it it's time for the boys to head back to work. 
So, since I've been away from home and canvas, I will share with Paint Party Friday a past digital graphic design I did in 2010.



"Dreams are Whispers of the Soul". 



Haiku ?

Sweet Hypnotic Sleep:
Dreams are whispers of the soul
who together sleep

Annabelle




Dreams are the windows to other worlds , delicious, mysterious, intoxicating, hypnotic, mesmerizing, intriquing worlds or worlds you rather hoped you never had entered.




Even they Dream...and if caught in a bad dream they have each other for a comforter.





A good idea to have one of these near your bed.




And the Dreams of the Day are the White Lion Wishes you Blew on the Wind




And I leave you now to Dream a little Dream with this beautiful vintage classic tango 

"Tango ~ Fate " ~ Nat Shilkret 1926, enjoy O,O
