I made this oil painting when I was changing gears in life. I felt I had missed the boat on things that were important to me. As I was in the process of making up the state of my life, totally not happy about it, and choosing a new direction, I needed to feel free, not cooped up and unlimited. I needed to dream freely and to feel that the best of my life had yet to come. This painting represents dreaming freely and believing in those dreams. I guess I never lost my child spirit as I’d rather sleep there than in my bed.
