Landscape from a dream


This is the closest I could get to the image I saw in the dream I talked about in a previous post...

"I had a dream last night of a woman painting on my Grandparent's farm and I was in love with what she created - they were landscape paintings, but very abstracted and they included layers of translucent circles that just fit with the whole simplified landscape thing... I think I might try to do some of those today in watercolor. I know they won't be as cool as in my dream, but it's worth a shot."

I tweaked the color and added a few translucent circles (over the painted ones) in my editing software to try and get the same effect. I realize now, part of what made the dream paintings so cool was that there was a 3 dimensionality to them impossible to recreate. Only in dreams, I guess....
