Dreams and the Subconscious


I like to paint intuitively and leave the interpretation open to the viewer. 
Quite often, I don't know what they're about myself until a while after they're finished, a bit like dreams. 
The best way to describe it is that they spring from a place inside my mind in the same way that dreams come from the subconscious and I become just the bystander watching it happen.

Now having said that,
the last two pictures you've seen here were purposefully made to look happy. I've had some major life issues to deal with lately and felt the need to see bright cheery colours, smily girls and sunshine.

I can do that.

Gorgeous painting. I love your description... I can totally relate to what you're saying. Making happy things in an otherwise unhappy reality can definitely put you in a better mood.
