Tired

I started this page by writing "I want to sleep"
and the layers of collage and paint evolved from there.

I'm tired..can you tell?

She's beautiful and peaceful and wouldn't it be lovely to sleep so soundly. I love it. Maybe I will dream in blue shades tonight......

Have a delicious day!

Bella said...

What a wonderfully ethereal picture. It really evoked the feel of a dream-filled sleep.

I hope you are able to re-charge your batteries and your tiredness is just temporary. There is a nasty little bug going round right now which my daughter is suffering from - hope you're not coming down with it.

Thanks Rex, I'd love to dream in shades of blue, what a lovely idea.

Thanks Victoria, I have been experiencing the most surreal dreams of late. :o)

Thankyou Julie, I love your description!

Thankyou Bee, you too, let's hope to catch up on sleep soon!

Thankyou Bella, I hope so too, it's as though I'm floating around in a trance a lot of the time!

Clare said...

What a restful, peaceful picture - she has succumbed to her wariness and let herself rest. This time of the year seems to leave lots of us tired, we have tried to do too much, not listened to our bodies, been caught up in the rush and pace of life - now its time to rest.

So beautiful! If you make a calendar, I think this would make a fantastic November!

Kristin_Texas said...

Nice! I love the colors. They really draw you in, and she does look peaceful.

I would love to get a nice night's sleep like that, but... I have a cat I have to fight with every night. Lol! I lose a lot of sleep because of that diva.

Hi J., perfect, this is the last blog I'm visiting before heading off to bed after a ridiculously late night at work... tired can visit dreams perhaps, dreams where flowers of midnight blue run wild.

Sea Angels said...

No I can't tell you are tired rather your work looks dreamy, as if you are floating on a dream of beautiful imaginings...its really peaceful,
Happy weekend

Thankyou so much for your lovely comments :o) I'm still tired but seems par for the course these days! I do find accupuncture works, I always sleep deeply after a session of that but not had any for a few weeks! At least when we're sleepy we tap into the part of the brain that creates! ;O)
