Weekly Quick Collage: Elephant's Dream


I have no idea what elephants dream about, but it probably isn't this!  Still, I had lots of fun making this crazy, whimsical piece. I hope you enjoy it!



Elephant's Dream
collage, 6 x 7.5 inches



“I believe in everything until it's disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons. It all exists, even if it's in your mind. Who's to say that dreams and nightmares aren't as real as the here and now?”
                                                                                                                      ~ John Lennon



“People think dreams aren't real just because they aren't made of matter, of particles. Dreams are real. But they are made of viewpoints, of images, of memories and puns and lost hopes.”
                                                                                                                        ~ Neil Gaiman



 “I dream my painting and I paint my dream.”
                                                                                                                         ~ Vincent Van Gogh
