The sweetness of sleep, knowing you’ve done all you can do. You’ve done the dreaming. You’ve got the vision. You’re keeping the pure beauty of the essence of your desires close, under your pillow, where they’re safe and well-fed. You’re being nourished by them, just as they in turn nourish you.

This piece was inspired by the Daniel Smith Primatek pigment “Sleeping Beauty Turquoise,” made from actual turquoise from the sleeping beauty mine.

Sleeping Beauty Turquoise is also available as a vector illustration on apparel and other products here in my Redbubble shop.

Every day of #Inktober 2017 I chose a specific watercolor for my INKspiration in creating a unique unicorn (Uniquorn) illustration. You can find the whole series on my Instagram feed!
