Intro: “Dream Big”
“Dream Big” is a series of 16 paintings that found root in the artist’s youthful dreams and aspirations. The series is dedicated to her eleven granddaughters, and seeks to encourage each of them to ‘dream their dreams’ – and then to follow them to fruition.
Once again, the artist uses colorful, stylized images to portray what she now recalls as her ‘future feasibilities’ – as seen from her youthful vantage point. She places her young self in each painting within the skin of a pear, and she brings humor to the series through the tongue-in-cheek titles.
The artist has created a book based upon this series of paintings.
