‘Nightmares Aren’t Real,’ 8”x12” is a group of 4 within the Bits and Pieces series, they are all acrylic and gold leaf on canvas. I’ve always been a big fan of sleep. When I sleep I always dream. When I wake up in the morning there are usually always 3-4 dreams I can remember with vivid detail, sometimes it takes me a half hour to tell my husband all I dreamt. Sometimes I share my dreams, but most of the time I have nightmares or variations of nightmares. Dreams that aren’t so much horrifying or waking up screaming nightmares (though I’ve had those too.) Most of my nightmares are more just unsettling, uncomfortable, unhappy, and anxiety ridden. The pieces in this series are stories in my life; they are dreams I won’t forget, they are nightmares played back on repeat in my head. Blacks, grey, white, gold, and rust colors mingle together to create a memory.
