Sweet Dreams

I   dream  a  LOT,  and  lately  I've  been  having  some  weird  ones--ones  I  don't  really  like--you  know,  the  kind  that  startle  you  awake  and  you're  glad  that  they  were  just  dreams.   So  I  decided  to  make  some  dreams  that  I  would  like  to have.......


I  dream  in  color,  but  not  quite  as  vibrant  as  this....


When  I  think  of  how  I  want  my  art  to  come  across--this  is  how  I  think  of  it.    I  don't  want  it to  be  realistic  and  perfect.   I  want  it  to  be  like  something  you'd  see   in  a  dream--colorful  and  fun--the  same  reason  why  people  read  the  books  that  they  do  or  go  to  those  movies  that  take  you  to  a  special  place  for  a  couple  of  hours   (me  being  one  of  them  : )   This  to  me,  is  what  art  is--something  that  makes  you  smile.


.....and  you  know  which  bird  is  my  favorite--the  one  who's  not  following  the  other  birds,  but   the  one  who's  following  her  dreams--I  like  that!



....all  sweet  dreams......

Great post. Interesting to me because I rarely dream. Your floral tree is quite spectacular! And who wouldn't love your birds?

NatashaMay said...

This is beautiful, Diane! I love the bright colors. :) I hope your dreams sort out and let you sleep.

Cathy Bueti said...

Ha Ha! I knew the one you liked was the bird not following the others! So great! And I am having weird dreams too. I don't like it. So this post spoke to me and I hope it brings sweeter dreams to both of us!

Love the tree!!

Love the bright colors! Makes me want to take a nap and hope to have some dreams also.

Diane, your work reflects your dreams in a beautiful way. I've always thought your art had a 'dreamy' quality to it. Sort of surreal, yet not really fantasy. I knew there was a reason-dream and paint on!

Diane Writes said...

Beautiful and inspiring! The blend of the colors are just perfect.

Gloria said...

This is a great post. I dream in lots of color too. Love your bright colored painting. Just beautiful. Have a great week.

Isabel said...

Loving the tree painting:O) I dream in color too and dream every night!!!!

tina kirk said...

Diane, I want to dream like your art! They are beautiful- I love the tree!!

Kathy said...

Your artwork is always an inspiration and loved hearing where YOUR inspiration comes from. Sweet dreams to you, my friend!

Had to laugh at the bird going her own way. Sounds like me, too. I know I dream, but I don't remember my dreams. Of course, if I did, I would DEFINITELY want them to be as colorful as this lovely piece!

Piarom said...

OOHhh I adore your pieces ! So vibrant and expressive...you inspire me!!

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

These are just beautiful...so vibrant and alive! I dream and remember my dreams every day of my life. The past couple of weeks, I've had really good dreams so I'm anxious to tell them every morning. I finally started an art journal a few days ago....I think I'll do a dream page or two! Thanks for the inspiration!

Jen @Sadie Inspired said...

So beautiful and full of color. Fabulous source of inspiration too. Keep dreaming! ;)

rachel awes said...

a dreamy collection, dear one!
i especially adore that tree!!!
+ i also adore how you are following your life + arting what you are noticing. xox

Emelie said...

I have talked of dream lately also not on blogger tho, and nothing like your great work, I so love the birds and was careful to see a little difference in each one. I alwyas think that waiting rooms should have art like this so a person has something to study and really think about, different things to look for and apply to themselves.

Janine said...

Wonderful! All of it! Have to go back and stare!

Thank you for your comment on my blog!

sharon said...

Thank you Diane! And I altered the idea after all - the tree I told you about was replaced with flowers - hmm. Thank you for your sweet comment and have a great weekend, xoxo
