I frequently spend hours and hours working on paintings in my sleep, but I never remember what they look like when I wake up (exhausted!)

Two nights ago I awoke remembering a dream in which I’d found a case full of my own ‘forgotten’ paintings: there were about 20 in total, and they were all of a similar style – one in which I have never painted during my waking life…!

So I hastily grabbed a canvas and started work on this before the image faded…

It really does look a lot like the style of the paintings from my dream, and I really, really like it :-)

An expressionistic, exploratory artist, I create without restraint or intent. I am a passionate advocate of natural learning, and this organic approach informs all of my work, giving my creations their vibrancy and spontaneity. An abiding love of nature keeps me going when my rather warped sense of humour fails. Above all, I reject the dysfunction and pain our culture perpetuates. More of the same is of no interest to me. I say “YES” to that which is life-serving: let a new paradigm emerge!

    Wonderful creation, Jay. I had the same thing happen when I first tried to write poetry. I was such a great poet in my dreams, but could never remember anything when I awoke! I wrote a poem about it! lol
