I dreamt of a floating forest, displaying the basic colours one might find in a sun-dappled wood. This morphed as my dreaming mind tried to tell a story for it and it became floating mountains… some part from Lovecraftian dreamscapes, some part from Miyazaki’s moving and floating architectures. I enjoyed the mass floating off to one side and dragging me and my fellow viewers off the side of the canvas, but the composition still felt stagnant… until I added the horizon line. I was getting closer, but leaving the massive rocks reflecting in a lake didn’t bring the movement I felt in my vision. When I scratched up an abstract treeline, I gave the rocks the size they deserved. When I added in the snowy field in front, the sky lightened and build a greater contrast between it and the floating rocks. They became unmoored from the ground and started to appear like the travelling structures I dreamt of.
