"Sun Day in France"  Original Oil Painting by Artist Dreama Tolle Perry

“Sun Day in France”
9 x 12in oil on museum quality panel


Every little breeze whispers your name.
Sunshine reminds you that the night always passes.
ALL things are working together for your good:-)
There is simply nothing to amazing, to awesome, to wonderful to happen to you today.

Just thought you should know;-)

What is given away always comes barreling back at us.
I tend to forget this.
Like when it comes to workshops.
Hard as I may try, all the good I try to put out seems to find its way back in the people that I am privileged, and I mean PRIVILEGED to meet.  Pictures can’t tell all of the story.  Smiling faces and paintings done—behind it all—remarkable individuals living remarkable lives—gracing this planet with LOVE and JOY.

Lexington I/October 4-6

"Out for the Evening in Tuscany"  Original Oil by Artist Dreama Tolle Perry / DreamaTollePerry.com

“Out for the Evening in Tuscany”
12 x 16in oil on museum quality panel



sing to me of Joy
let my spirit rest in warm waters of understanding
in the quiet
we are owned by no one
and our soul finds
its needed rest

Counting blessings last evening became a vision of people in my life.  I hadn’t planned on this—the list just grew and it was all people.  Some here, some passed, some new, some old.  Their love was palpable.  Are we not held together by the love and relationships we have in this life?  As fragile as life feels at times what pulls us through the tight passes are precious, enduring, faces of love.
And for that we give thanks.

    To give thanks…to feel gratitude…to give love and to feel love and to be loved…these are the pathways to serenity, to bliss, to a rich and full, and well-lived life.

    Thank you, Dreama. Beautiful words. Loving words.ReplyCancel

What does it mean to you?

Before someone else attached their opinion to it?

When it was still in it’s purest form, just you and the other.

The other being

art  •  creativity  •  god • prayer

Clouded and fogged in by all the baggage that sometimes attends words we have grown up with.

Words like:

art  •  creativity  •  god  • prayer

It maybe makes sense to take a step within
leaving outside
the chaos and conflicts.

Conflicts surrounding words like:

art • creativity • god • prayer

To let your heart define it for you,

In silence.
Laying itself open and bare

So that in life, in living
you might begin to define
for yourself
the undefinable.

art  •  creativity  •  god  •  prayer



Note:  I have an opening in my Lexington, Kentucky workshop Oct 4-6, 2014.  You can view the details and register by clicking here:-)

    I agree with Carol. Your words today are both heautifully expressed and a deep meditation.

    For me, those four words are interchangeable – they are one and the same.

    My heart defines art as the outward expression of creative intention, which, in its purest and most honest state, comes from a special place. A still place. A contemplative place. A meditative place. A sacred space. Like prayer. Like God.

    When I am in that sacred space, my heart defines those words for me, in that stillness.

    Thank you for this, Dreama. Truly beautiful.ReplyCancel

Who Are You Working For?

Who are you working for?

When brush lights on canvas
When music cues the dance
When song finds its melody

For whom are you working?

What voice, what face, what memory  is there with you—admonishing, cheering, doubting or inserting fear?

Censorship is important in these matters.

If the face belongs to an ex
to a critical parent who never thought you could
If it is one who ruminates over your failures but fails to notice your successes-

Let them be.

Gather to yourself voices, faces, and memories of those who love and have loved you.
They are the ones for whom you create.
They hold you up with their love, steer you with words of encouragement, belief and a knowing.

For they know what you yourself may not yet know.
That your gifts are no mistake
That you can not fail

Mercy runs anew each moment
Gratitude flows and covers your path

You are intended for great things.
Remember and yet I say again
For whom are you working?


Putting It Into Practice: A very priceless person I know surrounds herself in her work area with photos of people, some living, some now long gone, that she knows love her unconditionally. These are not snapshots—they are large photos. These faces of love are in her space, on her mind, and are the very ones she allows to flood her heart with peace while working.



Note:  A new 2015 workshop in Florida has just been added :-) For details, just click here!

    These words touched me and resonated with me – and within me – deeply, Dreama. Thank you, as always, for gently and beautifully guiding our creative hearts and creative spirits and inner creative intentions toward that light, that spark that joy within each of us…to outward creative expression.

    When I paint, and when I journal, I feel my father’s love and his spirit helping me, guiding me, encouraging me.

    Thank you, Dreama, for reminding me, and for helping me to remember. It also has me wanting to listen to, at full volume and singing along to, a brilliant song by Robert Palmer, entitled, aptly enough, ‘Remember to Remember.’ReplyCancel

      Thank you June for always so generously sharing your thoughts here—I am glad this resonated with you!ReplyCancel

    You are right that our individually unique gifts are no mistake, truly.
    The ‘Perfectly French Pitcher’ is rich and full to the brim.

    The “Who Are You Working For” poem
    Is beautifully matched, Dreama, to The Perfectly French Pitcher and it’s full to brim blessings.
    A beautiful post.

    This blessed me. The critic of my own work has died a swift death and nobody misses her.ReplyCancel
