I Woke Up

This is a painting that I did for the Loch Gallery to exhibit in the International Art Fair this past October. Although they did not hang it I am quite happy with it. About 12 years ago my friend Mia Skye put out a little chap book of her poetry. It opened with this quote:
I woke up
And forgot who I was
But remembered a thunderous dream
Of having to be somebody.
For whatever reason I carried it around with me- I wrote it out on my wall a few times- I guess I found it motivating. This painting is my ode to that quote.
