my sleeping dreams are usually very vivid and i remember most of them. this painting attempts to capture a very compelling one i had on the night of the lunar eclipse that occurred on the winter solstice of 2010. i had the dream after i went back to sleep-post eclipse. it was very dark in the dream and i was trying to discover the reason for the darkness. i found out then that a person had taken the moon out of the sky and was holding it on their shoulder. keeping all the glowing light to itself. the person was neither man nor woman yet i knew who it was. which is very strange and enchanting! the overlap between waking reality and the minds processing of events into sleeping dreams is so interesting to me and i think about this crossover often. what does it mean?
