Ever been in one of those dream loops that you can’t seem to get out of? This dream was a doozey. I mean epic…
I could hear voices all around me but I couldnt open my eyes and scream “this is a dream people go home!!!!”
” Where did she come?” a little girl quietly asked her mommy.
“Shhh little one no one knows; it’s a mystery.”
“They say she’s a princess” a man said reverantly.
“Look at that tiara. Do you think it is real?”
She is from another land a man said who commanded authority. She was to be the queen of her world Raphalia. I must discover what can be done.
There was a hush
I wanted to snicker. “Come on guys this is my imagination speaking.”
A note mysteriously appeared in my hands.
“Princess Alyssa the clock is ticking. You have one year to live after the poison has entered your body. You will remain in a dream state until the cure is administered. Use your powers to seek aid.”
~Your servant until death
“Ok dream it is time to let me awaken” I said unsuccessfully.

I recently started following talented artist Arna Baartz. This watercolor “Water Girl” seems to speak of a watery, dreamlike state. You can see more of Arna’s work here. Thank you Arna for the opportunity to show off your work.
