PASTORAL DREAMS ~ WHAT DO YOU DREAM OF?


"You are entering the mysterious fascinating world of dreams, where the rules of reality do not apply."

~ Dream Moods.com




Do you Dream with eyes wide open or only in your darkest sleep?
Do you see the Dreams you Dream in Vivid Technicolor , Black and White or only in the faint wisps of smoky ghosts that remain behind, haunting your every daylight hour?

Do you love the curious and mysterious realms that are secretly tucked within the crevices of our earthly landscapes or in the microscopic tunnels of our strange and beautiful minds; they might even be the more intriguing of the two for each brain describes the embodiment of flesh and blood that belongs only to you and no other human being.





I dreamt up these two digital graphic designs some time ago, basically pondering on what Dreams really mean.

I am a dreamer and it has never been a secret I kept to myself, for to me "a dreamer is one who can find his way by moonlight and see the dawn before the rest of the world."
I have difficulty in remembering my dreams of the night and therefore I sapor in my daylight dreamy hours, these dreams I have with eyes wide open enlighten me with endless magical realms.
So, I thought for this week ,since I've been enjoying some quality family time ( my husband and son just returned back from their jobs out west) and  not really doing much for painting or working on my show case for Denise's Etsy Shops promotions( will definitely be getting to it this weekend)  that I would share some of my inspirations, and sketches for possible paintings.


Oh, and the quote you see at the top of this post is from a site called  http://www.dreammoods.com/ .
I'll have to pay them another visit and explore their site, looks interesting; you might like it as well.





Dream Sketches of moon, stars, lichen, forget -me -nots, dandelions, bubbles and butterfly







The paper I sketched on was already sparkled ( a little treasure I picked up at a church sale) , must try to find more of it.





And this little painting with an angel and gargoyles I discovered at a thrift store in Aylmer Quebec. It doesn't have the artist signature , wish it did. Anyway, it's beautiful and it inspires me.




And finally a little reminder of lost treasures. This diminutive beautiful pussy willow tree near my home was just right for picking a few fuzzy branches and maybe even take the one with the nest. My daughter said that I was possibly stealing a tiny bird's home  but it didn't matter because even before I could reach the branch I fell into waist deep water…lol! Anyway, long story short, I returned a week later to see if the ditch had dried up and wouldn't you know it….. the tree was gone, nest and all, it was bulldozed over….progress?????





At least I have this pic to remember it by : )

Leaving you with a very lovely song for today….HAPPY Paint Party Friday

When reading the comments on Youtube some viewers felt that Leonard Cohen in this picture looked a bit like Al Pacino , Dustin Hoffman and Adam Sandler. I suppose he does remind me of Al and the  other two but to me he is the one and only Leonard Cohen, the poet of our time. O,O Enjoy !
