Painting Dreams

Dear friends and readers,

My deep love of fairytales goes on.

Having let the image of my dream-visitor, the Black Woodpecker (whom I wrote about in this post) integrate fully with me, having taken in his gifts, I felt strongly compelled to call him deeper into this world through a painting, so that he now exists for me here too... brought to life and now living within a fairytale landscape I see in my mind's-eye.

This felt like such an important and empowering way to work with dreams I receive like this... To acknowledge them and bring them into form somehow, giving them a voice and honoring them. Opening the door and inviting further dialogue.

For those of you who also adore fairytales like I do, archetypal landscapes, little cottages in the woods and mysterious dark visitors who come knocking, I now have art prints of this painting available in my store >  https://society6.com/product/black-woodpecker_print#1=45

Thanks for stopping by and visiting me today. 
Here's to dreaming strong!
