The Laborious Journey

"Where Dreams Grow" by Eleatta (c) 36x48 acrylic (SOLD)

Where Dreams Grow was created as a tribute to the wonder  in which the human heart cultivates a dream.  Conceived in the secret place of the soul, it is nurtured through thoughts of hope and faith. Due to the power of it's innate life within, it pushes through layers of obstacles. Because of it's laborious journey, it's resulting fruit is humility.

In preparing for the Durham Dreams Reception Gala, I have chosen this painting to summarize my thoughts concerning the sincere lives represented in the DURHAM DREAMS series. 

Below, I have posted images  of some of the "dreamers" featured in Durham Dreams.
