“Sweet Dreams,” is a colorful, mixed media collage that emerged from the darkness of a sleepy, black gesso canvas. It was an exhilarating process throwing colors into the void, finding forms from what started as loose lines and textures. I first spotted a vase and as I worked, fun flowers and leaves sprouted their way into the art via collage. Paper petals were created using rice and tissue papers, a gel medium skin left over from my paint palette filled the center of the vase. The swirl of sweet colors inside the vase illustrate the essence of our dreams. The varying stems or paths represent the possibilities and full blooms are fulfilled dreams. “Sweet Dreams,” pays homage to our awakened soul; lightness from darkness, hope and joy.
