Nightmares and beautiful dreams...
It's so curious, when I was a little girl, I had so many terrible nightmares night after night; as a result I had dark circles under eyes all the time. I remember not being afraid of the dark, but I was afraid to close my eyes. As soon as I closed my eyes, the nightmare continued, like a story; never the same, but
with continuity. I remember only two beautiful dreams. One where I was able to fly and land so easily and the other one where I was floating in a beautiful river and saw many towering trees.
I avoided seeing anything scary, that increased my nightmares. When I first saw the Frida's Paintings, I thought they were so cruel and rude, I avoided them. When I was in my 20's my nightmares disappeared almost completely. I started to read about Frida and I saw her painting pieces in books and some museums. Now, I'm a fan of Frida, and I found so much inspiration because of her.
Here are two paintings (one is in progress), they will be available on my Etsy store.
Thank you for your visit.
