SEA OF TIME

Dreamed 1989/7/26; digital painting 1990, by Chris Wayan

I dreamed I was drowning in the Sea of Time, where dragons asked me questions. PAINFUL questions... but I didn't regret the visit, for as the painting says, "really useful pain is not all that easy to come by."

NOTE

This was a first sketch of a 1989 dream that was just beyond my art-skills at the time to render more realistically. The dream haunted me for years till I painted and told it more fully (and I think more successfully) as a picture-poem, American Tanka. Still, this version has a psychedelic intensity, especially that last line.
