My husband, who makes a practice of recording his dreams, had one which involved a piece that I had (not yet!) made, very 3-dimensional and realistic though he did not know how I had done it. He gave me a written text of the dream, and that became my inspiration.
The yellow house came from a photo which I found on-line by entering “yellow house” and I used it with permission from the woman who posted it. The house is in Stavanger, Norway.
From the dream story: “… the dream scene appears before me as a piece of artwork!. It shows a large tree on the right side whose branches, covered with red and green leaves, protrude out from the surface of the work. … A narrow yellow brick road runs from the upper right to the lower left of the image. There is a small yellow house on the far side of the road.”
The tree is actually a separate piece, attached to the front of the background.
His Dream was accepted for the Art Show in Kerkrade, the Netherlands for the annual conference of the International Association for the Study of Dreams, and was on display from June 24 – 28, 2011.
