COME A LITTLE CLOSER , THEN YOU'LL SEE

Dreams are a mystery, they are the night fevers that fabricate the delirium of which intoxicates the mind.
Sometimes they come creeping into the room at night with prophetic visions of days of future passed,
immediately the voices are back asking the symbolism of the Dream.

Carl Gustav Jung believed Dreams were a way to communicate and acquaint oneself with their unconscious; a window into one's inner soul.

William Shakespeare said the eyes were the window to one's soul,

And Helen Keller said the most beautiful things in life could not be seen or touched , but felt with the heart.


The dreams, the visions, the eyes, all symbols as well, all telling their very own tale of their heart.


"Cold - hearted orb that rules the night
Removes the colours from our sight
Red is gray and yellow, white
But we decide which is right
And which is an illusion"

~Moody Blues



aND SO THE dREAM (a past dream)
of the
Malocchio ~ The Evil Eye



I'm in the elysium of an evil eye after trying my hand at water colour painting of a Lover's Eye.
Although I'm far from happy with it's horrid gaze it has given me some thoughts to ponder on while creating it. I want to make a series of eye paintings , some beautiful and haunting,some more on the creepier sinister side for incorporating into my Haunted Lover's Eye Spiderweb Frames. 
If you look at the previous post "A Little Fairy Spider by the Name of Charlotte", you can see the frames I'll be using for the next Haunted Lover's Eye in the collection.



"Come a little closer, then you'll see
Come on, come on, come on
Things aren't always what they seem to be"



***********“Come a Little Closer” **********

I was just having a bit of fun playing a little game of “looking for a clue to the identity of the drawn eye in the photograph”. I placed the eye on top of an Ouija Board to convey it's invisible form with the yes and no words barely noticeable, kind of saying “ Yes I'm “The Spirit Eye”, no I'm the Evil Eye or Witch's Eye, the Witch Hazel bottle also being one of the clues. Anyway, didn't really spend a lot of time on the game just thought of it as I posted it. Still a big kid at heart : )

p.s. I don't use the board for it's intended purpose ( I'm a scary cat) I just use it for a Halloween prop.





"Do you understand the things that you've been dreaming?"


 While painting I listened to this song from my daughter's collection, M truly has opened my mind to the current wave of music played on Vampire Diaries , Pretty Little Liars , Castle and other similar programs. I love all sorts of genres , especially the classics and music of the past but some of today's scores are finding their place in my collections as well.
Enjoy : )




Interesting symbolism throughout this song. "Come a Little Closer"by The Cage Elephant.The most blaring ones are The Third Eye, Planets, Possible Drug References, etc. ~ Covertpolitics

Please take the time to pay a visit to the artists on Paint Party Friday. Thanks Eva and Kristin for hosting.

"Time flies by, they all sang along
Time flies by, they all sang along
Time flies by, they all sang along
Time flies ~ bye, bye "

Until Later,

That Evil Eye is sooooo amazing! And I love your art. It's like entering another world.
Dreams have been my companions since I was a child. Without dreams I could not survive. :)
Thank you for visiting my blog.
I'm very sorry for your Italian family. This is a real trouble, this crisis. I have tried sending CVs outside Italy, but it looks like everything is suspended, waiting for some change to happen...
Let's cross our fingers and keep on hoping. :)
