.. A dream I had .. Puppets .

I was painting in the studio the other day ..
working on some new things in oil and acrylic
and thought these puppet characters might be nice
with watercolor and ink on a smaller scale .

They are partly from characters I have had
recurring dreams about since I was young ..
And part Taki Fugu .. My little dog that I've
been spending a lot of time with this last year .

They are not any one particular kind of animal
or creature .. Just all of them and the ghosts
of them from somewhere in the back of my mind .
A dream I had .
