32"x48"x1" Acrylic on boxed masonite.
Inspired by a lucid dream;
I awoke in a dream floating downward in the dark ocean. I feared the unknown lurking in the dark. A shark might be there to attack me. I then surrendered the fear and chose, from a knowing place within myself, to continue floating down to the depths of the ocean.
It got pitch dark and colder and colder until at a certain point I "knew" it was time. I shot like an arrow straight up through the ocean, into the bright blue sky and pierced the middle of the golden sun.
I pulled myself through to the other side of the sun peeling back the outer layer like I was opening a huge eyelid. I saw beings going about their day doing their work. In this world everything was lit up from the inside. There was no need for artificial light. Everything and everyone glowed from within.
I again "knew" I shouldn't go any further or I might get lost and not be able to get back to earth. I cried out for help and woke up in bed.
The next day I finished most of this painting and the painting "Of Earth and Sky ".
