Running through my dreams

Running Through My Dreams — acrylic on canvas, 2018. Personal project.

This painting began as a digital collage on the now defunct Polyvore site. It was inspired by a dream about my mother. The juxtaposition of elements, the slightly odd perspective, the colours and textures, all really appealed to me. Painting it was more like having a conversation than putting paint on canvas and it taught me a lot about why I paint and why I can’t stop painting. ‘Running Through My Dreams’ now keeps me company in the Art Cave.

Two more mini paintings ~ the title is another of my six-word stories: “Working together, they proved everybody wrong”. It seemed as good a title as any.

I have been revamping listings on Etsy to show how my paintings and note cards could look when displayed in rooms (or, as I like to call them, drawing rooms). The process of ‘framing’ them was fascinating, to see what worked and what didn’t. These are a few favourites.
