My God! My God!  ~ Feeling of  Awe

"My God! My God! ~ Feeling of Awe

This photograph features myself at a gallery opening
with my first collage of this type of visual art form.
The art work is a self-portrait of my clown character, "Servo Servin."
My goal in this art work, entitled, "My God! My God!," was to
recreate the feelings I experienced in a dream I had as a teenager.
The dream was entirely words which I quickly wrote down
when I awoke at about 2 a.m. that early morning.
Here is the dream (word-vision) ~

Just awhile back,
about last week
I jumped into a manhole,
hoping to sleep;
it was dark and cold in there and
I was frightened;
then I heard a voice and the manhole lightened;
the voice was calm and gentle
like a cool breeze;
all I could say was,
"tell me who it is, Oh! please!"
The voice came again, and seemed to be quite near, so
I bent over to lend an ear;
In the next moment
a figure came into sight;
looked like a person but glowed like a light;
as the figure came closer, the manhole would change;
it began to look like a picture in a golden frame;
finally this person spoke to me and said,
"Why are you here, and not in bed?"
All I could say was, "for this reason, Sir.
A manhole as beautiful as this I prefer."

That must have taken some serious patience.

an unusal combination: the lady and the picture, the art and the dream.
