Dream Journal Eight: Night at the Lake
Acrylic paint, varnish, and mixed media collage on canvas
12 x 12 in. heavy duty frame, 1.5 in. deep.
My Dream Journal series combines collage, print media, found objects, and acrylic paint to make deeply personal expressions.
Night at the Lake recalls a memory of a dream, a dream written on pages collaged into the layers of this piece. At night, you and your love swim in this lake. Silent fish drift by in the deep waters. The clouds part their fingers to reveal the full moon at its apex above the forest. The two of you tread water together, then dive.
Tiny metal beads adorn the surface of Night at the Lake, finished with several coats of gloss varnish for durability and protection, resulting in a glass-like finish. The signature appears on the back of this original piece.
