My Dreamscape Paintings

      In a reoccurring dream, I'm always driving somewhere in a car until I somehow end up walking. Then when my feet hurt so much I can't continue, I realize I forgot my shoes again and that's when I wake up. Although the imagery in this simple dream can't compete with the fantastic imagery of surrealism, what kind of imagery do we actually see in dreams? And beyond our dreams just being weird or entertaining, isn't our subconscious mind trying to tell us something? 
     From that perspective, my reoccurring dream is far from simple. Where do I want me to go? And why do I always make sure I never get there? It seems these are the kind of questions my dream wants me to ask until I find out what that other part of me is trying to say. Then beyond wondering, how I could have unknowingly created this puzzle of a dream that I can't solve, there are other questions that defy any kind of logic. What part of me could have created a dream ten years ago that literally came true last week?
     It's not just our dreams that are still a mystery, because they all come from a part of us that has an odd kind of depth and knowledge that we can't yet reach unless we're dreaming. In my Dreamscape paintings, there are no embedded interpretations to be discovered; instead I want the viewers to feel like dreamers who are lost in the act of looking for meanings and mysteries of their own.
