rest with your dreams

TITLE: rest with your dreams. prints available in my etsy shop.

there’s just something about this girl that i so absolutely love. i kept her simple.

i just cleaned out my art closet and found all sorts of new fabric that i used to use for embellishing t-shirts and bags. now i’m finding they’re absolutely perfect to use as stencils in my paintings!

for this piece, i knew i wanted a girl with long braids. and as i kept painting, i played a lot with not only keeping her simple, but maintaining a minimal black and white color palette so she’d stay standing out.

i reached a point where i adored her expression and hair, but i had no idea what was going on with the background and scene. 

so i went with the not knowing and smudged a patch of white paint across the bottom. then i got the idea that she seemed to be waking up from a dream and i wasn’t certain whether she was getting out of bed or heading into that dream, so i defined a few shapes in the background to look like bedposts and left the rest just filter and be.

she’d definitely all about dreaming and imagination, knowing that it’s alright to be at REST WITH YOUR DREAMS!
