Dreaming Time

Bridgette Guerzon Mills | sea lion dreaming time, encaustic mixed media, 6×12 inches

After shipping out work for the Wish List show, I started working on commissions. But while working on the commissions I continued working on a painting that I have had sitting in my studio for months and that is for me.

Throughout my adult life I have had recurring water dreams. In some of these water dreams, sea lions appear and in my dream, I know that I am a sea lion too. The water is always so dark around me and it is so comforting. like an embrace. In the darkness there is a soft light that filters through from above. There’s always this feeling of belongin/home/feeling beloved.

For years I have attempted to paint these dreams but they never felt right and I would paint over it. This one I am keeping.
