Sleep is made for dreaming

Sleep is made for dreaming


Size: 24x30


I painted this muse and her swan the beginning of summer 2021 after my oldest graduated from high school. She's off to college this fall, and my memory of the summer between high school and college is one of flux. Putting the daily routine of "that high school life" behind and looking forward to a new adventure is exciting and full of promise. All I could think while painting this was "she sees rainbows in her eyes". The reference to the "ugly" duckling transforming to beautiful swan is a metaphor of transition and growth.

Rich, jewel-toned acrylic paint layers with floral collage and gold leaf envelope this muse and her swan. The rainbows in her eyes reveal her wildest dreams and living life to its fullest.

This is an original 24x30" mixed media painting on gallery wrapped canvas.
