Pipe dream final - Bringing back the kid inside!

In deconstructing this one a little, I finally opted for the approach of a 3 year old...

... to underline the lack of seriousness of so called "pipe dreams". In final analysis, I decided to add some Chinese calligraphy, in essence, the Chinese characters for "dream". With this type of painting, I'm after unusual looking female characters that may create some uneasiness on the part of the observer.

Update: I noticed a few missing marks in Chinese characters which will be added before varnishing...

GLORIOUS use of color. The emotions you must have felt to paint this shine through. Excellent piece.
