“Furfect Bouquet”
12 x 16in oil on museum quality panel


Eddie considers himself the perfect addition to any party
any conversation
any bouquet.

I am not saying I agree with him.
I am saying we share the same living space….
and I’m leaving him there with my valuable possessions for 30 days.

Yes I let him name the painting—I’m hoping I can come home to the same house I left.
A girl can dream;-)

Dig deep into your soul
Harvest the seed planted there
For each of us were given a measure


be that one
Whose living
Brings JOY

without measure

To light
The JOY of love
The JOY of hope
The JOY of peace
The JOY of beauty
The JOY of giving
The JOY of receiving
The JOY of laughter
The JOY of JOY

Your mission for the day?
Spread JOY :-)

P.S.  I’m heading to California  for the next month to teach, visit with my daughter, catch up with old friends and make some new ones.  Meanwhile Eddie is being left in charge in Kentucky.  This means that the Eds (both Pierre and Bill) along with Maggie the Brown dog will be in charge of Halloween/Trick or Treat at my house.

To say I’m concerned would be a gross understatement…..;-)

    Really beautiful painting….love the dancing colors and flowers all up the steps! Wonderful post! Joy:)

  • June - October 29, 2014 - 11:03 am

    Beautifully expressed thoughts, words and colours, all blended with heart-filled cups of joy and love.

    I love the gentleness of this painting…there is colour – vibrant colour, but there is also so much calm, so much serenity.

    The first words of your beautiful post today reminded me of a wonderful title of a book – more like a journal, which made me love it even more – by May Sarton, entitled ‘Plant Dreaming Deep.’
    It also brings to mind that wonderful expression, ‘bloom where you are planted.’

    Thank you for this beautiful post, Dreama, and don’t worry about the Eds and Maggie. All will be well upon your return. Have a great time in California and at all the workshops you and all the artists will be enjoying there.

    And Happy Hallowe’en, a couple of days early. :)ReplyCancel

DREAMA'S 2015 CALENDAR! Available at DreamaTollePerry.com

It’s that time of the year when….

cats come to call

or you call your cats and they don’t come
OR you have a cat (Ed)
who does casting calls for dogs
to advertise your 2015 calendar…..


I know, in this case, it’s a blessing the budget only allowed for 37 seconds of filming;-)
Ed’s been striking the pose he plans to assume for the red carpet awards night.
Others will, no doubt, go ON strike if he gets anywhere near a red carpet or award.

So without further ado—here’s my 2015 Calendar that no doubt untold millions of you have been waiting on:-)

Not Just Another Pretty Face

No, not that calendar (that’s the “Not Just Another Pretty Face” calendar which is currently looking for a publisher.  Any takers???)

Be advised Dreama’s 2015 Calendar is colorful and will be lovingly packed by staff.

P.S.  Eddie is waiting with bated breath (actually more like baited breath since he is a huge tuna fan) for all the rave reviews to come in on his movie.  If you’d like to be a pretend movie reviewer from LA and leave a comment, I’ll happily look the other way—-a happy Ed makes for a happy calendar packer;-)

    Yay! Looking forward to receiving my Christmas gift to myself! Ha!! ReplyCancel

    In his directorial debut, young upstart Eddie the Cat takes control and proves he is a force to be reckoned with. Step aside Steven Spielberg and Ridley Scott, there’s a new cat in town. Eddie pulls every bit of emotion possible from Maggie, the brown dog, who turns in a performance that will surely launch a long and illustrious career. Keep practicing those red carpet poses, Eddie. Awards season is just around the corner.ReplyCancel

    Can I just pay additional shipping to get one in Anchorage, Alaska ?ReplyCancel

    A Lovely calendar Dreama! It’s a shame I can’t order one from Australia!
    Your blog is such an inspiration with your gorgeous, luscious colours – not to mention the joy of being able to follow your adventures in France and Italy! I also appreciate how you post insights into your sketching process and of course the insights into Eddie’s world.ReplyCancel

  • June - October 23, 2014 - 9:15 am

    Yes! Yes! Eddie Bill has created a masterpiece with this one! :)
    I hope Maggie has been well compensated by Eddie for her dedication and in getting her portrayal just right for the camera.:)

    Thank you (and Eddie and Maggie, too) for brightening up my day, in more ways than one – the video (and the accompanying great musical score), your very happy close-up shot, and of course, the calendar for 2015. As always, colourful, joyful, beautiful and beauty-filled.

    You’ve magivally transformed a very dreary, wet and grey Irish afternoon into something bright and sunny and fun. Magic (and it’s not even Hallowe’en yet!:)ReplyCancel

"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

Beth, Elizabeth, Laurie, Katharine, Regina, Margaret, Mary, Barb, Lynda, Martha, Mary Anne, Ivana, Joyce, Nancy, Carole, Laura, and Barbara!

Lexington II/Sept 8-10

2014 October Lexington Workshop 2:1
 Yvonne, Kathleen, Amanda, Sylvia, Jeri, Marjorie, Nancy, Susan, Barbara, Sharon, Rosanne, Terri, Judy, Cheryl, Janet, Catherine, Lori, Joan, Kristina, and Kathy!

Creating, smiles and love.
That pretty well says it all:-)

In Other News:

Want some sunshine in the middle of winter?  There are a few spots remaining in my last Indian Rocks Beach, Florida workshop coming in February–you can see the details and register here.  :-)

Calendar time is almost here! My 2015 Calendar will be available for pre-order this week—stay tuned!

My next Letters from Dreama arrives this Saturday. You can subscribe to the fun if you like by clicking here.
It’s always filled with videos, articles and inspiring things, hand picked by me— that I think you will enjoy.
