Sometimes dreams are a way of your subconscious mind trying to communicate a message to you. I experienced this first hand when I kept on having the same dream of being chased in the woods by someone or something. This left a feeling of anxiety and fear that bothered me, so I decided to paint a representation of my subconscious mind to work through my feelings. Nature is beautifully detailed and I spared no details when working on this art piece. Focusing on each detail was like therapy for me and helped me comb through fragments of my dream to find out what I was subconsciously running from in my life.
