The original picture is of a aquarium in Georgia. When trying to start the project, I could not figure out where to go with it, so decided why not....Dreams! There was a period where I was having dreams that always had a fish tank or two with colorful fish inside. I found the aquarium pic and was happy. I had a dream recently where I was being smothered and saw the character from a comic book called “Concrete” standing over me. You can probably tell which image that is. I used the liquify tool on some background areas – We can all relate to some dreams being distorted and “weird” many or most of the time. The muscle body running represents when we feel like we are moving or can't move in our dreams. You can see thru him to some fish – he's there but than he's not. The silhouette in the doorway represents times when I can remember thinking in my dream how I can wake up if I need to and step out of anything unpleasant. The television in the left corner reminds me of dreams where we seem to be watching a group of people or a situation but do not play a role in the scene. The T.V. Screen is a image of the Vietnam War. I had dream one time that I was in Vietnam. When I tried to shoot, my gun was really a water gun – the kind that had batteries in it. The car represents dreams I had where I was driving an old Honda accord for a while. The sunflower represents those times when we wake up and think, “What the heck was that about?” - How can a sunflower grow in the ocean? There is a faint image of a train wreck, probably in the late 1800's. That represents those dreams that seem to barrel out of control. The twin bed is there just because.
