Sweet Dreams, Surrealism, Spiritual Art
24 x 24 inches
Oil on canvas
This is a painting I did back in 1995. I was in my early thirties then. I had always struggled with nightmares most of my life. They were usually about the abuse I endured in my childhood. As I went through more counseling, I began to ask Jesus to heal my sleep. This was the first of many good dreams. It smelled wonderful. The wind was gentle and it was blowing the fragrance of the flower all around me. The path was moving with the petals, making it hard to move forward. It lead toward heaven in the center. I woke up feeling refreshed and at peace. I have had very few nightmares since then. I can even sleep soundly through most things now!
