He danced in a dream when the moon rose green
Yellow clouds sang a soft mel-o-dee.
The Palace of Dreams flowed through the seams
of his soul as he dreamed of the dance
At the circus of chance.
Thank heavens this little fellow wanted to be minimalist as I felt number seven was a bit heavy and full. It was enjoyable just to work lightly so to speak. I had it firm in my head that the green cone was going to be another ice-cream(like its predecessors had been) so I was surprised when moving the pieces over to my little table, ice-cream cone obviously wanted to be a hat as it sat comfortable on the red/brown piece of me-teinte paper.
I literally drew the little fellow without thinking and as I drew in the eyes I knew he had to have them closed, he was dreaming (The Dreamer was born) I also picked up the green immediately to make the moon, it just had to be green. etc. etc. it went on. I am not sure if the words were making the picture or if the picture were making the words. I have discovered that taking up a challenge of anything one learns more than one can imagine. I learnt so much with the sketchbook challenge, artists cards and now this.
The last three pieces have been a nice experience in that words have been forming with them.
