Three Muses Challenge 24 - In Your Dreams

This week it's my turn to host the Three Muses challenge and the theme I've chosen is IN YOUR DREAMS.

The piece I've chosen as my sample illustrates part of a poem I love for the imagery it conjures in me. (Alas I don't know the author.)

Credit goes to June at Art Freebies, Playing with Brushes and Efie at her blogspot.


However, I was in two minds this week and couldn't resist a second attempt at IN YOUR DREAMS and so for my own enjoyment, and for the surreal artist inside me, I created a little dream landscape of my own. Is someone dreaming of a nice cup of tea? Mmmmmmm.

Credit for this one goes to Rian, Bisontine, Irene Alexeeva, Granny Art, and Efie. The hand belongs to my granddaughter which I snapped whilst she was snoozing in the sunshine.

The font is Prissy Frat Boy.

Thank you so much for looking.

Ann, I love both of these pieces! I've always been fascinated with the sea, so that one captured my interest right away - and great poem! And the second one has a wonderful surreal quality that I love as well - it has great composition and atmosphere. ~Lori

Love your fantastic "dream" piece.

Loved that poem Ann... and I so identify with the surrealism of your 2nd piece! Love the snail... reminds me a bit of 'Hand' (or was it Things?) from the Addams Family!! =)

These are both fantastic Ann! But I really like the first one a lot. The poem is wonderful and I like how the words look like waves. Great work!
