Artist's Description

Once upon a time,
Or two times it would seem
There was a little dog
Who lived his life just to dream.

He slept all day
And all of the night
Just so he could spend
His life in dream-flight.

His home was in a castle
Way high upon Lenore Hill.
His dreams were days spent searching
For that one ultimate thrill.

He watched from the shoreline
For conflict and danger
No one was allowed there,
If they were a stranger.

But if you are a friend
Of Princess Maggie May
You would be welcomed gladly
To come visit any day.

Now back to his dreams,
There’s one that was the best,
This one he kept on dreaming
More than all the rest.

In this dream he has wings
That carry him away
He flies above the ocean.
He soars all over the bay.

He is free and oh so light,
As swift as a dragonfly
He hovers in slow motion
Just like a butterfly.

He thinks of biscuits and bones
And chasing a moonbeam.
He is the great protector
In his extraordinary dream.

In his sleep there is a whimper.
He is running it would seem.
I watch him nap and wonder. . .
Just what do dogs dream?

My original image:

Shot with my Nikon CP8400. This is my daughter’s dog, Peanut photographed on our last trip to St. George Island, FLA. He is thought to be a Feist mix which is a type of Chihuahua. They are bred to climb trees to catch squirrels. She rescued this little guy, when she found him he was very thin, full of ticks and near death. Her wonderful neighbors pitched in money so he could be taken to the vet and his little life was saved. He doesn’t forget it either, he loves his mommy and he loves his 2nd home at the neighbors house.

This image was digitally created in Photoshop. Painted layers in DAP.
Blended in are some of my own fractal flames created in Apophysis 3D Hack and fractal objects created in Incendia. Used native and external filters including Redfield Ripples & Fractalius. I used bits and pieces of free stock images from
stock.xchng & various PS brushes from:

Artistic Assignment: Created for my upcoming children’s book
