I have always loved Norwegian Rosemaling Decorative painting. Here I used the Rosemaling concept in my painting and added a little sleeping mouse.  I think that he might be having very pleasant decorative fantasy dreams.

"Daffodil Mouse Dream"

“Daffodil Mouse Dream”
Acrylic paint
4”X4” canvas panel

Sold - thank you

I have Daffodils coming up in my back yard. After gathering a bunch of them for painting subjects, I started to paint them and began to dream about what they must look like to a tiny mouse passing by as he looks up from the forest floor.  Now that I have finished my painting I see that the mouse has gotten into my painting and he is now dreaming about what the Daffodils look like to the human being who is painting them.................I believe that perspective is everything.
