] - the Figure in the Flames
In my dream I was running away from flames, but they kept staying around me, without burning me. At some point I stood still and saw a figure in the flames. It had some sort of crown, a glass-like face and yellow eyes, following me everywhere I went. All I did was trying to run away from it, which I couldn't. It was quite scary, although nothing specific happened besides that.

] - Breathe Infinity
In my dream, I saw a brightly colored alleyway. In this alleyway was a female figure without a face. She seemed lost. Then a male figure joined her. He hadn't a face, either, but he held direction and a confidence. She sprung to life and from her grew beautiful branches of the most insanely bright colors known to man. The man reciprocated the action expressing affection; his arms and legs became the strongest tree branches you could imagine. The two formed an infinity sign. Shortly after, I was woken, but the image will never fade. This is my attempt to recreate something beautiful.

3. [David the Good
] the unknown
Dream after dream i am lead by a light, a light i never reach, a light i can not hear. It is just always there and go follow it near and far over the hills and past the stars. Each time it leads me a new way a path i have never seen before and i only follow as it leads the way. New people, new places, some scary things and showing me some of the most beautiful faces. And no matter how bad or how far i follow the light each time far beyond the thoughts of my mind and past the struggles I face each day.

] - Ice Meets Fire Dream
One night, as of recent, I dreamed there was a great magic in the land and my dear friend possessed it. By the same token, her soul soon became possessed by the evil magic; it caused her to be split into two personalities: Good (fire) and Evil (ice). The good was represented by fire due to the deep passion she still held for life and for doing charitable works, compassionate and reasonable. The evil was cold and hard, reflecting the harsh nature she had taken on due to the magic. The dream was very similar to Dr. Faustus
, which I had been reading in my British Literature class at the time of the dream.

] - Day Dreaming
I tend to integrate sounds around me in my dreams, if the sounds aren't too loud and my sleep not too deep. And sometimes, when I worked for hours on a day on a painting or manipulation, I dream about it. This dream happened after I worked on an Autumn Fairy and while my bf was watching TV. It was a strange combination between a peaceful kind of fantasy, raw reality and just plain weird dreaming. I tried to incorporate all three things into this piece. The fairy(s), a castle on fire and a squirrel in a little boat with a seahorse as figurehead..
