Box of Dreams:

"Look up, Joe!"

Dreamed 2009/10/17 by Jenny Badger Sultan

A dream of wonder. My son-in-law and I are wandering in a beautiful landscape where people are enjoying themselves. The vision of the high peak with the waterfall is astonishing.

A NOTE ON THE TECHNIQUE

Jenny achieves the strange textures seen here by using an old Surrealist technique called decalcomania--applying paint to one surface, slapping it down on another, and peeling it off, leaving complex maze-like textures. You see it in the paintings of Max Ernst.

--Chris Wayan
