The Plane of 911

Watercolor and Conte crayon on Arches
24" x 18" 2002-3

I dreamed I walked around a crowded city with this piece tucked under my arm explaining 911 was a plane of consciousness. When I woke up, I painted it. What you see is the dreamed work.

I don't know how often, if ever, this happens to other artists, if they dream a work in its entirety without adding embellishments from the outside mind? When I talk about art this way, of course I mean all creative efforts we know as the Arts.
