Word up # 81 Dream

Every great thing begins with a dream it’s said, and that you need to act to carry out your dreams. But if you are always busy with taking action when do you have time to dream? Well we need to find the perfect balance in life, enough time for dreaming and enough time for making our dreams come true.


I was beginning with a paper collage as a background. I had a lot of small pieces of leftovers on my work table, I white washed it with a thin layer of gesso and I colorized with dylusion ink.

we must not only act but also dream

I painted a dreaming model with acrylics and I added some stamping with archival ink.


I applied some more acrylics with stenciling and the title Dream. Finally I added some self rusted metal embellishments.

I am sharing my work with One little word word up #81.
