acrylic, foil, collage on w/c paper
This was an actual dream, which I’m still hoping to have again so that I can finish it properly! Here’s what I wrote after doing the art:
Diving and surfacing – the protectors swim under the surface, but deeper than the sharks. I jump into the roiling waters, drawn by sheer desire, a boundless curiosity, but still I have my head above the water – curiosity not satisfied. I count to three several times, but do not dive under. . . I awake without seeing the wild creatures face to face. Dolphins or sharks? The only sharks are in my mind. I imagine the dolphins are about to teach me a wild sort of freedom, which brushes up against me solidly and wetly and feels like my own true animal skin.
And. . .my husband Bob has resussitated his art blog and is going strong. Check it out. He’s definitely the brains in the family and he knows how to talk about art process in a way we can all relate to immediately. He just talked me into joining Facebook (like I have time for that too!)
