☆ Dreaming Softly [Friday Art]

I have been slightly obsessed with dream catchers all my life.

If you have been reading here for a while, you know that I am a vivid dreamer. My dreams are often intense, bright, consuming things. I often wake up with what I call Dream Hangover.

So since I was little I have always had a dream catcher above my bed.

I couldn't say 100% that I don't have bad dreams. But I no longer have the dark, stalkerish dreams that I used to have.

My kids are vivid dreamers too. Often we'll hear them cry out, talk or even sing in their dreams. (And that last one was the funniest thing I have ever seen!!)

So I invested in dream catchers for them too.

Just in case.

So I have been thinking a lot about them lately. I have some cool tutorials pinned that I would like to do one day, and create my own personal dream catcher. And they often pop up in my paintings like here + here.

But in the meantime this one will do.

I love how this turned out. At one stage there was so much water on the page that the paint from the page previous seeped through. And even though I was horrified at the time, I actually love how it worked out in the end.

I wish you good dreams this weekend!

  1. I love dreamcatchers too and your painting is stunning, just gorgeous!!
    Happy PPF :)

  2. This is absolutely gorgeous ! Dream on my dreamer friend :)

  3. This is fabulous. I love the idea of dream catchers. I have one i got years ago but it's hanging in our computer room so maybe it helps my cat Lily with her dreams! The most vivid my dreams ever were was when i was stopping smoking years ago i used nicotine patches and I'd i kept it on in bed i would have crazy dreams so i did keep it in deliberately! Usually i only remember snippets when i wake up these days which is annoying.

  4. fantastic painting of a dream catcher Kirstin!! I too have one-just in case:)

  5. Kirstin, your painting is wonderful.
