Photo above shows an unfinished painting (WIP)! “Remy” is a painting of a dream I had about my son. In the dream, I was walking in a dense forest along a stream when suddenly a bright and shiny form sparkled up at me from the water. I bent down and picked up a huge, gorgeous abalone shell and held it with my two hands. As I was admiring the shell, I abruptly woke up to find myself holding my newborn son’s head in my two hands! I had fallen asleep with him on my chest and woke up gently cradling his head. It was a scary situation to wake up to, but the image of holding the shiny, special shell has always stuck with me.
