  1. Oh my goodness!!! I LOVE this piece and the words and everything about it! Wow.

    I wish I dreamed this sort of dream.

  2. Diane says:

    I would love to go with you into one of your dreams!

  3. I love the gentle protective
    strength of your wolf:)
    Not alone, indeed.
    Happy May, beautiful dreamer.

    Are you “the woman who runs with wolves” Rachel?

    Dreaming about a wolf or wolves can have many meanings, both ways – it seems to me, that your wolf is a very protective one, one who can be trusted, one who will always appear when he is needed – the woman in green (is it you?) looks very comfortable with him – what a lovely scene…

  5. ELK says:

    to remember a dream and make it alive on paper in such a special way is a true gift … you are both looking at something..happy may my friend

  6. Kolleen says:

    oh Rachel…. i love this so much!

    and you are not alone my friend.


  7. Janet says:

    Another fantastic piece! You have such a gift for creating drawings that seem simple but are truly much more than the few lines you use. This one really speaks to me.

  8. I love that we are sister-dreamer-bloggers
    with our posts. What a nice way to start
    a new spring month! The wolf is beautiful.
    You are never alone..You send out so much love,
    that I imagine you have angels around you all the time! xxoo

  9. Very cool to capture your dream through your art, I love your work!

    Rachel…I have a thing for wolves and I just love this image. So much comfort & peace & sweetness in knowing that we’re not alone.

    Your words of gentleness made all the difference for me on Sunday (I wrote a bit about it in yesterday’s post)…I just adore you, beautiful, present, shiny one. β™₯

  14. Milena says:

    Am reading Women Who Run With Wolves so this print totally reflects where I am right now πŸ™‚ The bright and beautiful flower eyes of the wolf are so lovely.

  15. Suz says:

    Rachel, Rachel,
    This blows me away. And I am so glad that women are still reading “Women Who Run with the Wolves,” like your reader above. This is just a treasure! The wolf is so big and powerful, yet so sweet and gentle. I might need to live with this one.
    Running to the store to check for this rich picture!
    Big hugs,

  16. Sounds like a sweet, calming dream. I love the flowers in the wolf’s eyes.
    A huge dinosaur appeared in my most recent and very vivid dream! Not so sweet :))

    Your wolf is so loving, supportive and intuitive. How beautiful she came to you in your dream.

    Hello there Rachel. So glad you came visiting with your little boat, and now I’m returning the visit with mine. Although it’s leaking a bit here and there. πŸ™‚

    I can just imagine how surreal this dream of yours is. I dreamed of wolves many times, even with my eyes open. πŸ™‚

    o, intrigue! wolf? from your dreams? i’m buzzing with curiosity. this is quickly becoming one of my faves of your work {i am aspiring to owning a print btw}. i don’t know how you do it .. i am in awe of the sentiment coupled with the art that you come up with. you have the gift {and you also give the gift, come to think of it}.

  36. sperlygirl says:

    oh, you have such lovely work. i love the ‘fluidness’ of your lines. beautiful.
