“Dream Believer”

Ashley Nicole Sheets

18×24, acrylic. impasto gel, clear gel, plastic film, glue, lightweight spackle on canvas

I didn’t have a specific image or theme in mind when I painted Dream Believer. I just started with one twisted piece of plastic wrap and it morphed from there. I wanted a unique combo of contrasting rich colors, as well as a balanced light/dark contrast in conjunction with the textured strands. Afterwards it made me think of a dream coming to life out of the darkness.
