Still Dreaming comprises ten meditations spanning a decade of the artist’s life and portrays dreamy hopes and aspirations against a background of the challenges of growing old. Dreams of living by the sea, in a forest, and what heaven in like combine with earthly realities like aching joints, poor distance vision and the need to downsize.
