INTERMISSION WITH A DREAM ~ "FISHIN on a DREAM "~ MOPSY THE SPIDER DREAM CATCHER

Since last Friday I've been busy working on my WIP "Brown~Eyed Daisies and Chrysanthemums " Bas- Relief Painting contemplating the finish I want to render it in. So far this is what I have achieved in the next step of the work, adding a few more tints of colour ,wiping away the excess and highlighting some of the areas ; now, I'm sort of stuck where to go from here.








So I thought a little respite from the painting and dreaming along the way that I would share this Dream Catcher I made.
Being one who always loves the intricate magical work of a Spider's web, I'm not at all surprised when an idea pops into my head that it's source derives from Charlotte's Web…: ) and leads me somewhere new.
 As I recall, the idea came to me when I saw a little boy fishing on a dream catcher; I thought, why not a spider  fishing and instead of his catch of fish, make them fireflies .

Here is where vintage jewellery comes in handy.

Fireflies and a mother of pearl heart


So now , without rushing the work , I must get back to finishing this Bas~ Relief. …..I have another painting that I'm anxious to get started : )

Don't forget to pay a visit to the gang at Happy Paint Party Friday

Until next time,
Annabelle

Annabelle! Seriously, that dream catcher is AMAZING! I have to say, I have never been attracted to them in general - but this totally changed my mind. A dream catcher Anthropology style! This should be in a magazine ;) xo

Annabelle, I am terribly embarrassed that I post my terrible drawing to PPF. You are incredibly creative. Beautiful works.

Oh my , thank you for all of the very nice comments.

Kristin, I have to say your comment made my day!
To have my Dream Catcher change your mind on Dreamcatchers makes me realize my art has touched someone, that makes me very happy. And imagine him on a glossy page….in focus : )

Jennifer, it's exactly how I felt at the onset of PPF and I still do today. I don't think the feeling ever goes away but the good thing about having that feeling is that it gives more fuel to becoming a better artist.
Sometimes, when I come upon a art piece that truly captures me, for a split second I get the urge to mirror the work but then what it does do is it ignites me to explore deeper into my psyche. I think this is what happened in creating my dream catcher when I saw some made of lace dollies and a boy fishing on a dream catcher, instead I just incorporated elements I adored and Mopsy appeared : )
The beauty of art is that it makes us explore, discover and fall in love with an image returning back home inside your art room with a view to your backyard , taking your brushes and tools in hand and pouring out your inner vision onto paper or whatever medium fancy's your thoughts. This is what in my opinion makes An Original…haha "Vampire Diaries" on my mind : )

Janet, I'm not sure what my next step on the Bas~Relief is, maybe dry brush the Chrysanthemums and small flowers and daisies applying some highlights.



Again thanks everyone, very much appreciate the feed back and so enjoy this group!
