seeing things

Dream I; casein on board; 20" x 20"

How would you paint a dream?  Fluffy clouds or specific scenes?  Maybe you'd just paint an image of someone sleeping - or a cat curled up in a corner purring.

There's been a doodle of a morning glory flower - face forward - on my studio wall for some time.  I did it in colored pencil in a sort-of-fractal way.  It somehow gave rise to the painting above - my largest casein in quite some time.  It was a good break from my usual realistic fare and gave me a chance to play with the paint a bit more freely.  I love painting the orbs in casein - a medium that really lends itself well to those bubble-y-spherical-floating shapes.  It was fun to get carried away.
