not sure what you mean. i have seen wonderful things, only to not understand how to use my camera, or its broken, or stolen, or missing, or i thought i shot it but didn't, or i shot great pictures but had nothing in the camera in the morning.

doesn't happen a lot, more often now because i haven't been able to shoot things in real life.

I do! All the time! And then I get really inspired to get up and start creating something. It's the best feeling.

I don't believe so.

I have had dreams that I am looking at some really cool art that in my dream someone else did. Then I wake up and realize that because it only existed in my dream that someone else did it, that I can do it and it is really mine. But I never have accomplished such an art, but I do remember vaguely some dream art that I would like to do yet.

I actually created art sleepwalking.

Most of my art is created as a result of dreams. I also get in a dream-like state when creating them. As far as how often, quite often.

usually if i dream of art, its usually about the future. or its whatever i'm saturated in. so if i'm watching a cartoon, i'll dream in cartoon.

I'd like to get some peace and rest at night.

If I am working with a particularly tricky piece - my brain will work it out during my sleep. So that's no fun.

I will also see or create cool pieces in my dreams. I wish I was as good as getting them down as I see them on paper.

I do definitely dream in color .

I do it many times, specially if I am trying to figure out a painting i am working on


Dreaming, dream-states (including waken or daytime dreaming) is part of my own creative nature; its involvement is sometimes conscious and at other times working in the background out of sight. When it is 'out-of-sight' it still leaves a residue, clues and evidence, that it is 'faithfully' energized and cooperative with my creative motivations - sometimes it even strongly suggests that my direction or medium is less than adequate for the effort in progress.

At least that has been my own experience...

My first serious oil painting was based on a dream I had.

Now I sometimes dream about the painting I'm working on.

I don't have dreams of my art, but my mind apparently keeps going over design challenges, especially if I'm working on a custom design for someone. I will literally wake up in the middle of the night with an idea. Then I HAVE TO get up and right it down, otherwise I will forget it by morning. It's disruptive to my rest, but I can't seem to stop doing this. I wish my brain had an "off" switch for when I go to sleep. (not off completely... I'd like it to keep my heart and lungs, etc, functioning, but I wish my thoughts would go to sleep when I do) :-)


In some ways, like wondering through a dream, automatism can meander and unfold into visual journeys - seemingly to no end...But obviously with much purpose. Viewed by an audience, one has to wonder: Has the next viewer sailed further than the first? How dreamy are our creative works when viewed like one views dreams?

Yes, I have dreams that lead to the creation of my artwork.
Here is an example.
