River's Edge by GregSkrtic River's Edge by GregSkrtic
"River's Edge" 2013, acrylic on canvas, 66 x 38 inches.

A young woman wades through the moving waters of a shallow stream, her long red dress flowing with the current. Shafts of sunlight break through the dense canopy of trees. On her left forearm a golden serpent bracelet descends.

Beautiful! This gave me chills - some wordless memory flitted through my head and I think it belonged to a dream I've had in the past. I can't take my eyes off this painting.

it is a recurring dream, of a young woman--always with her face partially hidden--walking, standing, sometimes just sitting, but somehow communicating with me.  I believe this to be the spirit of my daughter who passed away at a very young age speaking to me.  Always, I awake with her just out of reach, but am filled with a mixture of emotions.

I am so sorry to hear that! that must have been a really hard time to go through that, especialy if it is your daughter.

sometimes dreams are ways people cope with death, and spiritualwise especaily ways people comunicate to you if you're greiving a lot. Maybe you cant see her because you cant see her message to you? It must be very sad to have that dream a lot.

again, i am really shocked to hear that, I hope you are able to understand the dream, and feel better. :(
