Description: Dreams are essential precursors in our struggles to achieve our goals and fulfil our potential.

Blue seemed the ideal colour choice for this piece because it is restful and reflective. Blue, the colour of the sky and water, is the coolest, most detached and least “material” of all the colours. Blue symbolises infinity, truth, peace, intuition and spirituality in most cultures.

Hand-lettered inspirational quotes overlie a filmy cloud-like background. These kernels of truth and wisdom can sometimes become overshadowed and almost hidden amongst the veils of uncertainty and indecision. However they remain there, forming a firm foundation, and ready to inspire us when we most need it.
