Triangle Dream

What is the difference between a prayer and a dream? Hmmm. An interesting question. After my Triangle Prayer drawing the other day, I sat down to draw another, but found myself thinking Triangle Dream the entire time while drawing, and so it is:

“Triangle Dream,” 5 x 7 inches, pen and ink, available here in my shop.

I am tempted to pull out the old dictionary.

And so I will: From Oxford:

prayer: 1. a solemn request or thanksgiving to God or an object of worship. 2. An entreaty to a person or a thing entreated or prayed for.

dream: 1. a series of pictures or events in the mind of a sleeping person. 2. a daydream or fantasy. 3. an ideal, aspiration, or ambition.

Perhaps I have linked the two concepts in my head more than they ought to be, but maybe a dream is the thing you are conjuring up in your head, and the prayer is the actual asking for it. In that sense, they are two parts of the same process, although I think far too many people stop at the dreaming stage.

I have learned (and learned again and again and again) through this art life of mine, that you must ASK. ASK for what you want—ask the universe, ask a stranger, ask your mother, ask yourself. Ask anyone, just ASK. Put it out there as more than just a dream, but as something you would really love to create or have. You never know what might happen! Of course, after the ask, comes the do. Doing, perhaps is even more important than asking. Doing is the answer to the question.

Well, there is my motivational philosophizing for today.

I also like to think of this drawing as a triangle dreaming. That really amuses me.

    The idea of a triangle dream is really amusing. I love that you use your dictionary. I collect dictionaries, and often find the meanings of words to be fascinating. Plus, when it comes down to it, prayers/dreams are very similar in how they are experienced. It’s all perception anyway, right? Rad!
