'The Dreaming Place'
10.5 x 14.5"
"I am the stars, the ocean, the smell of the rain on wet ground,
tears of joy & sorrow, lavender flowers, old incense, & brightly coloured paint swirling in a jar of water.
I am the translucent glint of a Dragonfly wing, the soft music of windchimes,
& a compassionate embrace.
I am the golden glow of a winter sunset, the worn & aged pages of a favourite book, & the soft firey glow of a candle in the dark of the night.
I am the small piece of driftwood, carved by the ocean waves, rose petals, ribbons, feathers & sage.
A big pot of tea, on a stormy day, Cosy jumpers & socks keeping the cold at bay."
This painting is a self portrait...of sorts..I didn't aim for 'photo-realism' of course *chuckles*
But it does contain a lot of personal feelings & energy. It began as something quite different, & as the time passed it took on a life of it's own & I just painted her as she dictated.
However, I would like to leave this one to the viewer to see how it touches you...& perhaps you will even be able to tell me exactly what its meaning is.
I almost changed the name of this one at the last minute, when I realised that Charles De Lint actually has a book named 'The dreaming place'. But I guess it just shows that great minds think alike! :)
