Monotypes: Dream Series Redux

This week I have some more interpretive monotypes based on dreams of blogger Toni Tiller. I have included two variations of a dream that involves reform and retribution. In Toni’s words: “I got away with murder once, so I thought I could do it again, turns out it was only beginners luck. I paid my debt to society and was released into the sea, instantly transformed into a whale, enormous and weightless. It was only in moments of exhilaration when I leapt above the surface was I reminded of the heaviness of truth, and came crashing back down.” The other print is based on her succinct narrative: “spitting up diamonds.”
