This oil painting was completed this year.
It is all about sleep and dreams.
The figure on the left is Morpheus, god of sleep and the other figure is falling asleep.
Butterflies are symbols of the psyche.
Flower petals at Morpheus’s fingertip are transforming into a butterfly
The figures are set in the Landscape of Dreams, with a road to lead you through it. There is also another path leading down the base of a deep valley, crossing a steam on a stone bridge and running past woodland into the hills below the sleeping figure.
Until next time

This oil painting was inspired by a film still from ‘Cyrano de Bergerac’.
I only worked on this when it felt right and the painting went through quite a number of stages , over quite a number of years, until I finally decided that it was finished.
until next time
