Paki Smith, Contemporary
I DREAMED OF A WHITE SNAKE IN THE GARDEN
Oil on jackfruit board, signed; signed, inscribed and verso, dated 1995 verso.

Exhibited: Gallery 706, Sri Lanka (March 1995); R.H.A, Dublin (May 1995).

On Note Verso:

I painted this in Sri Lanka in Jan-Feb '95 - after a dream. I seemed to dream about snakes chasing me about, trying to escape a swift cobra in the garden or - being bitten by a snake etc. The man who gave me the shed to work in, Avril, told me that dreaming about a white cobra meant great good fortune and that my wife was pregnant! This painting was shown with a series of 6 others at Gallery 706, Galle Rd., Colombo, Sri Lanka in March '95 and then at the banquet exhibition, R.H.A Dublin in May.
