Painting Series: A Gathering of Good Friends

Triggered by my dealings with airport security, body scans, luggage scans, and all; I had a dream sometime ago about a device and wrote it down for safekeeping. This contraption was a handheld scanner that acted like a portable x-ray device. When you held it up to a person, instead of seeing bones and outlines like a conventional x-ray device, you actually saw a person's soul.

I can't say that it was a 100% pleasant dream, but it was a curious experience; you can imagine the various representations a soul could take form in. One scene in particular struck me deeply and I've attempted my best to reproduce it.

A gathering of good friends.

Joyful, colorful. I really wish I could have conveyed the fluidity of the scene as viewed through my device in my dream, but this will have to do. Enjoy!
