Sunrise at Summit Beach

Sunrise at Summit Beach by Karen Gadient, 2014

It’s been a while since I’ve done a dream post, but I visited an interesting place in my dreams the other night and wanted to make some artwork to remember it.

Much like my last dream post location, I’m pretty sure I was on another planet.

David and I were staying at a beachside resort at the base of a snowy mountain range. I don’t think the landscape was actually shades of red and orange as much as the atmosphere—and, like the last dream, twin suns—cast it to appear that way… but it was eerie and warm and incredibly strange.

So, where have you visited in your dreams lately?

  1. Is that rain….or stars falling from the sky? :)

  2. Thanks for this postcard from your trip.

  3. Expressive view in your dreams. It’s not easy to say what places I’ve visited in my dreams lately. The places are too fast out of my mind after I woke up.

      I keep a notebook by my bed and try to write things down or do a quick sketch. Sometimes, though… it’s gone too fast.

  4. That is very cool. It has the feel of an old tinted postcard.

  5. I like the way the perspective leads you into the picture – or at least appears to anyway! ;) Looks like it’s going to take me on an interesting journey. This would make a very good book cover, has intrigue within the picture itself! :) I could do with some dreams like yours, I don’t seem to be having many memorable ones with stunning scenery, they are all a bit vague at the moment, which is unusual for me. I used to dream in vivid colours and often visited places I wished were real.

    Have you ever seen the film ‘What Dreams May Come’ with Robin Williams? I think it was made in the 90′s, so it’s getting on in years now, but that film is very dream like with art mingled into the scenes, because his departed wife was an artist. I haven’t seen it for a few years now, but it’s a lovely film, and one I’m sure would inspire dreams and art at the same time! :)

      Thanks, Suzy! I always appreciate your thoughts. Oh, yes… I’ve not only seen that movie, but I’ve read the book. Lovely, indeed, I agree. :)

    Lovely. That must have been some dream, phew!

    I’m curious, though…You don’t sketch nightmares, do you?

    • karengadient

      Thanks. I’m fortunate enough not to have many nightmares, but when I do, they’re too personal to share here (although I’ll make notes in a journal for my own reference).

  7. Last weird dream I had– I was playing rock’n’roll guitar with the actor Russell Crowe. Actually, he was teaching me a better way to play the songs I knew. Don’t know how that invaded my sleep. Nice artwork.

  8. What a beautiful dream! I’m impressed you can remember your dreams so well to create artwork from them – I struggle to remember mine! Fabulous image x

    So very striking! beautiful

  10. What a really cool post :)

  11. In the last dream I remember ~ I was walking through a neighborhood of yesteryear, found an old girl friend in her front yard, we bumped into each other a little bit and she split in two. So what does that mean?

  12. Gorgeous expression! It reminds me of places I’ve visited in dreams too, great to know someone else experiences this.

    A “Dream post”… Hmmm. Interesting concept. I’ll mull on it. :)

    • karengadient

      You should! We all dream such crazy things and I think it’s interesting to share. :)

      • equinoxio21

        It means writing down immediately what you remember what the dream. There is many a dream I wish I could remember to write a story…
        Take care

  14. Excellent colour composition!
