Gradient Mesh


Contemporary dream researchers tell us that dreams are an essential part of learning; this dream seems to back up the idea.

The Dream: I am using Adobe Illustrator’s gradient mesh tool, over and over.

Interpretation:
  During the day I had been working on a complicated illustration of an azalea and for the first time had intensively used Illustrator’s gradient mesh--a very powerful tool, but tricky to get to know. The dream, in which I  practice endlessly, supports the theory that one of the reasons we dream is to perfect waking life skills.

Thanks, Tasha! It's part of the series "The Yosemite Herbal." I'll be showing these at the Yosemite Art Center the week of September 13, along with teaching a drawing class.
