Do any of you do that?--have recurring dreams? I don't, but I'll dream about the same thing, but in different ways. There are these same situations or subjects that I'll dream about, but the dreams are always different. And they're very random, and if I told you what they were about, you'd be thinking that I'm a very strange person, so I'll keep it to myself : )
But, when I think of it, it's another way that I make my art too. I'll re-use my artwork, but never in the same way. I make prints, but I always go farther with the prints and "dream" a bit different from the originals.....
And I've never had a dream where the different topics that I dream about will combine together to make a whole new dream.....but I can do that in my art life--
...bits and pieces of my art coming together for a whole new piece....
And one final note on the subject of dreams and then I promise I'll stop talking about them. Two weeks ago my daughter was married, but not in your traditional way. You see, this is her 2nd marriage.....but...it's her new husband's (my new son-in-law :) first one. She didn't want the regular over the top wedding--she already did that, and believe me, I very happily agreed with her. But her husband did (well--actually it was his family that did, but very understandable). So...they compromised--she had her dream wedding in Jamaica--
(Tony and Lisa--aren't they a beautiful couple?!)
.....and this coming Saturday, they're having their wedding reception here in town. So, it's going to be a very busy week around here. They're trying to keep it very casual and stress-free, but you know how that is when it comes to weddings. Let's just say that I'll be glad when everything's over and done with, and they can settle down into their new life!
