Art of the Week

 "With Few Exceptions"

I found this piece via an email update from Esty. It's by Kaylee Hull on Etsy; see more of her work here. What I really like about this piece is not just the beautiful juxtaposition of colors and looks of texture, but the story behind it. She explains that it's based off of Freud's "Interpretation of Dreams":

"With few exceptions, people dream. I'm not talking here about dreams in terms of plans or wishes for the future, but in the generic sense-as we sleep we dream. Most dreams, vivid as they may seem, are forgotten within minutes of waking...I've never gone so far as to paint my dreams, but many artists have. In fact, the whole area of Surrealist painting is very much predicated upon the painting of dreams. "

Such a beautiful concept. See more of what the artist says about the piece here

What's beautiful about this piece is the randomness, just like dreams.

Girl thank you for your comment earlier. It's so nice to have people that just know exactly how ya feel. Thanks for the advice too, I needed it. =) *Hugs*
