“My name is Iris”. Oil, 70 ×100 cm. Work in progress

I had a dream,

which shed some light on my reasons for painting. I found myself in a room filled with paint buckets. Some were empty, some half full and I was lifting up the lids of the buckets, peering into each one to see if that one had what I was searching for.
A voice spoke from outside of my dream and asked me what I was looking for and I replied,

“– I am looking for my soul”.
