Illustration Friday Topic- Asleep


I did this image after reading a book about American Indians and dream interpretations. I liked the idea of having the warm tones of the boy against the cool tones of the night and illustrating his dream in those night tones. The image is oils on board.

  1. That is beautiful. I am sure the chosen animals represent certain strengths in American Indian dream interpretations.

  6. Such a range of talents you have, Patti! This one and the Chocolate (excuse me while I salivate!) are masterful and evocative. Show-stoppers, as they say in the art world!
    Thanks for your appreciation of "The Girl with Silver Hands," too.
    Best Summer wishes, Susan
