I dreamt a woman artist had collaborated with two older men, one did the background the other some frame setting. The woman was to draw in a shark, or was it carp? This was about 20 years ago and she had never completed the project. The men were now dead and famous, the picture would be worth millions, so I encouraged her to add the fish! It is not too late. She did.

In the catholic boarding house, looked out the window and saw buildings, this one & the next are the views from the room I am staying in.

Dream: I had a dream that night that I did a series of sketches called “Here & There” which is a nice title I think. The Here ones were very close up details, soft, textured, abstract of somethings close to my eye, like the sheets on the bed. There was more like the buildings out there. Hmm, may need to match these with a few Here.

I dreamt I provided a social service. My usual copyright is modified for this sketch. Anyone can sign it, and name it, provided money from sales go to a New Zealand registered charity. I will do my usual 25 prints, I will call mine NOT, they can be purchased & money will go to suitable cause arranged with purchaser. I do not require a percentage from re-sale.

Prints are in pigment ink on 13 inch by 19 inch archival paper.

I really hoped Helen Clark would take me up on this. Of course it is not too late, though paintergate is a long time ago..

I had a dream. I dreamt Prince Charles had two postcard size oil paintings to put up here as part of the project. I was not to put them here, explicit orders. However these two numbers were allocated for his sketches & I could not put up the sketches I had till his were up, so here they are – even though they are forbidden.


One thing I make of this dream it is that I had thoughts of doing small post card size paintings in oil once this project is over. But I have a task & should not dream, I’ll have to wait, wait like Prince Charles!

Following the flame – Jung’s Dream

Posting a sketch here by L Laughy from Nithwave for inspiration.

I had a walk & talk with Kate yesterday and we were musing over our projects – her horse treks & my sketches. She told me the story of Jung’s dream with the candle. I found it really useful to keep me focussed here & today has been a busy Thousand Sketches day! No sketches, but podcasts & posts and a few good emails have come & gone.

Then as luck would have it when googling for Jung’s dream I found the words accompanying a beautiful moleskine sketch, I’ll post the words and then the sketch.

“I had a dream which both frightened and encouraged me. It was night in some unknown place, and I was making slow and painful headway against a mighty wind. Dense fog was flying along everywhere. I had my hands cupped around a tiny light which threatened to go out at any moment. Everything depended on my keeping the little light alive. Suddenly I had the feeling that something was coming up behind me. I looked back, and saw a gigantic black figure following me. But at the same moment I was conscious in spite of my terror, that I must keep my little light going through night and wind, regardless of the dangers. When I awoke I realized at once that the figure was my own shadow on the swirling mists, brought into being by the little light I was carrying. I knew too that this little light was my consciousness, the only light I have. Though infinitely small and fragile in comparison with the powers of darkness, it is still a light, my only light.”

From: C. G. Jung, Memories, Dreams and Reflections.
