Cultivate Your Dreams

Hello everyone.  (Does anyone else have trouble knowing how to start their blog posts? Sometimes I get completely stumped after “Hello Everyone”.) 

This little mixed-media piece was worked on over the course of several weeks. I had some issues with it and it has been changed quite a few times.  I’m still not quite sure if I like it, but I have to say “enough is enough” eventually, otherwise I waste time on this one piece when I could be starting new ones.

The little “fence” posts at the bottom of the canvas are actually canvas keys  – they’re those wooden bits you get that are supposed to stretch the canvas to make it more taut and prevent future sagging.  But, because I am lazy, I used them here as part of my picture, instead of actually bothering to stretch my canvas 🙂

As for “Cultivating your Dreams”…. Wouldn’t it be nice if it was a simple as popping a couple of dream seedlings into a pot and watching them grow?  Feeding and watering them, gathering any fruit or blooms they produced?  I suppose, in theory, it is that simple, but you have to put in the hard work to prepare the soil and make sure the conditions are right.  If you neglect your dream seedling, it will shrivel up and die.

Wow, that was a bit deep…

I hope your dreams are alive and well, and ready to blossom at any moment.  May they bear lots of fruit and keep you nourished in hard times.

🙂

  1. I love this! Infact each of your post. Your words are as beautiful as your artwork. We all are most excited when we are done with the seeding. It is very important to be patient and water it regularly. That’s what I’m really bad at! Now whenever I’ll think about it. This post will always come to my mind. 🙂
