Tree of Undreamt Dreams
This watercolor was directly inspired by an image in a Patrick White novel. I don't remember which one--although I think it was one of his stories about painters. He wrote beautifully about artists.
For me, who has lived my whole life drenched in the colors of my dreams, it is a perfect visual. White was into exposing the demons. He liked to fill them in in all their glorious, awful details.
...one of the reasons I like his work so much.
