I wanted to paint a piece that depicted the moments right before a person begins to drift off to sleep. Right at the beginning when their eyes start to lose focus and their eyelids become heavy. During this time some people experience "waking dreams" when reality begins to mingle with their subconscious and sensations start deceiving the mind . To illustrate this, I decided to leave large blocks of color and dripping paint.
