About a decade ago I began having dreams in my sleep of paintings I had never seen before. They look like mine but are less distinct and seem to wave. They also have less contrast and a lot more blue than my other work. A few years ago I decided to try to put some of these on canvas.

I rarely have those dreams now but when I do the paintings are by someone else in the dream. How strange that I would invent paintings for other people in my sleep!

What a fantastic experience!

I especially like the flowing motion in this painting.  The flowers and leaves move around the space much in the same way that the lines and colors in the cloth do.  It is a feast of color!

This morning when my husband called me to get me up I was so tired that we had a strange conversation.  We can’t get certain organic items here so once a week he picks up some things at a store where he works. 

I know you want tomatoes but what about cabbage?

We still have some from last week.

I didn’t see any.  Where is it?

In the refrigerator. 

The refrigerator?  I never thought to look there.

Ha ha!  Wow am I tired.  Maybe I put it in the dryer.

Okay and I’ll check my sock drawer.  It must be around there somewhere.


Do you think he might have been a little sarcastic?


Thank you for looking at paintings by an Artist of The Blue Ridge Parkway
