Dream of a faraway home

The original writing I chose was from a journal entry of mine I had written about a dream about a year ago: 

I dream of a far away home... … found by way of plane, train, and snowmobile. A very large and wandering beauty of a place that is pieced together in a most remarkable way. Large, spacious light rooms with smooth perfect walls. A place where you feel unconquerable. Then other rooms with warm, cozy imperfections... completely different, yet so much a part of the full house. I want to linger, and look, and be... but my host is hurried and apologetic and unhappy. We must go, but I am so at peace here... why must we go?   

I look forward to experimenting with this visual story. I know it will be a challenge to describe the emotions of how content I felt in this space, but how far it was to get to and how quickly I had to leave.

Here is one idea I was thinking about ... using words to create the construct of a house, playing with size and color and orientation to describe the mood of the story.

I have come back to this project after some time, and have changed my idea on how to tell my story. I really thought it was better to use a book form that allowed the reader to follow the journey page by page... it felt like a natural way to build in pause and introspection.

I enjoyed the process of drawing and painting these pages very much. I have shown you a story board version below, but am working on a slide show/e-book idea to let a virtual reader enjoy each page just like they would by leafing through it on their own.
