A Voice in the Middle of the Night

I heard a voice in the middle of the night, telling me:
Catch your dreams before they slip away.
Since this blog is as much about insanity as it is about painting (how different are they, really?), I thought the voice was in my head. As I sat bolt upright I realized it was actually the Rolling Stones singing "Ruby Tuesday."
Dying all the time,
Mick continued,
Lose your dreams and you will lose your mind.
Which was hardly comforting, but made me think of a painting I did entitled "Woman Adjusting Head." Unstretched and stapled to the wall, it looks like this:

Kind of a Magritte/Munch fusion.

Ain't life unkind.
