By now my regulars here are accustomed to these little Sleepy Sundays posts. There are some new faces around here lately, though. I’m happy to welcome you and excited for the future ahead.
For those new to the site, here’s how we do Sleepy Sundays:
- Myself or a guest chooses some form of art to display. (This can be art, music, video, poetry, etc.)
- The story behind the art form being displayed is told in a short [but sweet] quick post format.
- Sometimes a question is asked and we have a little discussion. Here, I lovingly refer to those as “coffee chats.”
- These posts are done weekly, every Sunday morning, like the name suggests. More info here.
With all that said, there’s a neat story behind today’s piece. Hope you enjoy being a little scared your first time around!
This pattern piece was inspired by something devious. You’d be quite surprised at the source. I saw this color scheme, and a pattern like this one, within one of my most frightening and vivid nightmares.
I was with four other people I’d never met before and we were being chased by some crazed madman and two creatures. The creatures were like something you’d see in a Sci-Fi movie. The man had a vibe of average lunatic we see on the news everyday. We were in a wooded area and he chased us through to a large swamp by some disheveled home that looked like it was built in the 1800s.
We ran into the giant abandoned home in an attempt to lose the beasts chasing us. Upon inspecting the place, we realized it was falling apart. We heard the monsters enter. We split up and searched for hiding spots. As I searched for mine, I saw this as a wallpaper on the walls of one hallway. It was ripped and falling off, but I remember thinking it was pretty, and it seemed someone cared for this place at one time.
The monsters got a few of them. Two of us made it out. When I awoke from this nightmare, I was dripping sweat and scared out of my mind. It took me a few minutes to realize where I was.
Do ever have vivid dreams or nightmares? Do tell. You know I love a good coffee chat. 😉
Have a rustic ol’ Sunday!
