i think it's great to dream, infact i think it's what forms our real world.

I had a painting dream last was a good one, but not nearly as good as this! I like the "celebratory" sense of it. It makes me smile!

Charming and evocative, Bill!

Thanks Celeste! Thanks Judy!

We had this big elm tree. It was beautiful! Dutch elm took it. I was going to carve Renee on a swing into the trunk.
Now that I'm selling the house, the trunk has to go.
So this was a dream I had wanted to do.

Indeed you have created a very dreamy air to this painting, very well done.

You are selling a house, hope you will be happy wherever you go.

Thanks Jane!

Once I sell the house I'll be able to dream more,( ithink! :)

Celeste Bergin said...

the painting is as good as what you would have carved...maybe better! I like how paintings and drawings are a way to immortalize an idea

Barbara Pask said...

This is wonderful, makes me smile. This would make a great image for note cards.

Thank You Celeste! I think I'm through cainsaw carving, it's not too forgiving.(dangerous)

Hi Barb! Thanks! :) It's good to make folks smile!
This is a rough drawing, i think i could refine it into a painting.
(another future project)
Nice to hear from you!

Dearest Bill, sometimes dreams aren't dreams. Please let me know what MN stands for as I am quite daft.

Hi Tina!
I had to think awhile on this one.
(Meaning sometimes dreams are nightmares?)
I have those too! :(

MN stands for Minnesota.

I took an online painting class a few years back. I had to enroll with a password.
It was suggested to give a name, what you were doing, and where you are from.
During the class, one of the other students asked if I had a blog.

"What's a blog?"

I was directed to and started one.
Since I was already signed up with
that name, I used it for my blog so the others could find me/my art.(I had no idea blogs reached as far as they do!)

Now I wonder if I should have had a differnt title, but it is what it is.

I agree, Bill! This is a lovely, whimsical painting. It reminds of me Peter Pan somehow! I think it is the shadows of the children.
