Let me open with the topic of my thoughts- that way you can decide whether or not you want to stay to chat about it.
I’ll go out and say that this painting is based on Michael in Peter Pan. I don’t know why I chose to use him for this idea. Maybe it’s that he seems so prepared for his dreams. Whatever his imagination can throw at him is no match for him. I just imagine Michael wearing pinstriped blue and white itchy pajamas, dragging his teddy, and fully prepared for that train heading towards him, or whatever that light is. Michael may be small, but he is strong. Yes, I think Michael will have sweet dreams.
