Sometimes people ask me to paint their dreams. Mostly I answer No thanks- I have enough to do with my own. But sometimes the dreams are appealing to me.
One day a friend asked me to paint chess figures with parachutes, jumping out of a military aircraft. At first, it did't mean a thing to me. But the idea with its multiple metaphorical angles stuck with me and now the painting suddenly is finished.
Thanks, friend, for sharing your dreams!
