is one of my favorite artists. My sister and I had the pleasure of viewing one of his shows in San Francisco a few years ago. We both purchased a signed copy of his book, The Impetus of Dreams, and it is something I will always treasure. Often, when Leila awakes from a long nap and she looks like she is reentering the world, I will ask her, "Did you dream of castles and gardens and faraway lands?"
I imagine her dreams to be much like the incredible watercolors of Daniel Merriam.
