March Lucid Dreams During 2014

5th March 2014

I met Ernst Fuchs for the first time, he was 100 years old. He was having a painting delivered and I had to help carry it into his house but I dropped one end and it slightly landed in a puddle.

Last night I dreamt of finding a 6 ft tall William Blake book in a library argggg it was so epic and it would have cost a £1000 to buy according to the librarian. I only got to see one lucid pencil drawing on the cover…I wish I tried harder to search for paintings inside the book itself!

I had many lucid dreams where I was practicing new techniques to strengthen my lucidity such as, speaking to myself out loud and looking down at my hands. It was tough but it worked most of the time!

I have been shaping up on my knowledge of lucid dreaming and am once again using it as a source of artistic inspiration

In a single moment of dream time, my visual perception witnessed a vast luminous landscape, I managed to stare at the scenery for a good amount of time without losing focus.

I was able to do this because of a great insight I read the night before in the book ” Are you dreaming” When we project our vision of an imaginary world, each moment of dream time is actually an entirely new rendering of that previously imagined scene, which is why it can be hard to stablise dream perception and environments.

If our focus and attention shifts so does the dream….so in this dream I managed to keep a very stable image of this vast, luminous shimmering world pictured in this painting…. which was very inspiring to say the least!

I also realised while painting, that by entering a similar state of mind and consciously rendering this landscape, I am still able to maintain the lucidity of this imaginary world, it is permanently burned into my mind! What I have created with this piece is now a semi-permanent portal for other peoples consciousness to navigate through.
