I've been thinking about dreams, about bad dreams in particular, where primordial creatures represent our deepest fears. Someone recently told me about such a dream, and it reminded me of all the similar dreams I've had over the years. Which brings me to this painting, and my thoughts and feelings making it - how those beings in my dreams represent not only my own fear but my own strength, my ability to fight on my own behalf.

I think we all have strengths untapped, inner dragons and demons and sloths, layer upon layer of them, that can be our most loyal and steadfast allies, if only we turn our unflinching attention their way.
