The other night I stayed up late and watched the stars. It was one of the first warm evenings in awhile and I just got to thinking about dreams. Maybe if you’re dreams are big enough, and you really believe in them with all of your heart, then the universe will answer. And this is the painting that I created that evening… BIG DREAM BELIEVER.

BIG DREAM BELIEVER 8 X 8 Inch Print of Mixed Media Painting by JULIETTE CRANE
The original is created on 10 X 10 inch gallery wrapped canvas, so the lovely purple sky and shining stars continue around the sides into infinity. The painting is made up of an alchemy of materials from my studio…Acrylics, pastels, watercolor, ink, and colored pencils. Her face is drawn and then painted. On top, I applied an antique decoupage to protect the painting from the elements and add a soft yellow glow for added beauty and magic.

  13. Hey, Juliette, thanks so much for stopping by my blog! I am so intrigued with your whimsical work! And I love the star-dreaming. When I go out to the desert, I wait until it is really dark and then wrap up in a blanket and lie down flat on my back to see the millions of stars – totally magical!!

  14. I love how the stars go off into infinity on the sides of the canvas! Just like our dreams: there's infinite possibilities when you dream big and release them into the Universe.

    Don't you love a good star show???


  15. Beautiful illustration, Juliette! Always a delight to see your work.
