Loving Hands


I woke this morning from the most unusual dream I can ever remember. The vision is leaving as dreams do; however, the thing I remember is that I was amazed with what my brain had been entertaining me with. I think the dream lasted only seconds. It wasn't one of those that goes on and on.
There was a very large stage. I think I am the only one in the audience and it was dark. There was a piano situated at stage right. The curtains were a beautiful dark maroon and there was a chorus line of beautiful girls of all ages in dresses. But here is the thing. When I woke, I knew it was in color and now I can't remember what colors. They were singing but now I can't tell you what. And it was choreographed. They were singing in harmony but then one would have special part and the sound was just so beautiful but now I can't remember it. And they were moving around to the beautiful sound. They weren't dancing. They were moving around.
Well, as I write the dream memory, it is not so entertaining but really what I was amazed about was that I was dreaming in color with sound and choreography. I don't remember having color and sound in my dreams and what does my brain know about choreography....that is not dancing.
Enough,
Sharon

  2. I love this painting, Sharon. I always have sound and color in my dreams. Sometimes it isn't a good thing, but mostly it's all right.

  5. Sharon,
    I have to agree, this is one of my most favorite paintings! If you sell prints of it I will definately buy one!!

    I dream in color some of the time, but mostly I don't remember my dreams either. Once in a while one will stick with me. Sounds like a great dream, one to remember.

    Until later,

  7. Sharon,
    It's me back again. I looked at your painting in the morning light and wanted to tell you how much the colors affected me: the soft blue mist and the warmth of the gold. I often have the same visual image in my dreams: I'm looking down on wet sand at technicolor butterfly shells, just washed ashore by the tide. I've dreamt this for 20 years or more, and I always awaken with the feeling of joy and serenity. When I'm lucky enough to have this dream, it's like a lovely gift. Maybe a painting someday...

  10. Everytime you paint a new face it becomes my favorite - this is no exception.

    I dream in color and often can see myself in the dream - as if it is all taking place in a movie or something.

  14. What a lovely face on her! I kinda like those dreams that I can't remember all the parts or grasp the meaning, but it lingers with me all day long. If I try to share it, it doesn't sound as interesting as it was to actually be there - there doesn't seem a way to explain it in words! =)

    I hope you and your family have a lovely Thanksgiving!

  25. I dream in color and sound too. Love your painting, Sharon. You do such lovely work.

    Are you ok? It's been several days since you posted. The last time you missed several days the lawn mower, excuse me, "think tank" had turned over on you. :) Hope all is well with you and you're just busy!
