Homegirl Dreams (Bridget Riley), Homie Dreams Suite

Riley introduced Everhart to the concept of “color sensation,” the idea that all your senses can be overcome just by color alone.

In this stunning series of portraits, Everhart has posed Snoopy, Charlie Brown, and the rest as if they have grown bored while posing for the painter and have just started to drift off to sleep. They try to hold their pose as if they are awake, but yet they float away. Tom explains that he wanted to show them entering into the world of dreams, as he believes that this is the place where all of us (artists or not) creatively grow the most. And that is also why they are all smiling, because they are enjoying their own “happy creative thoughts.”

Each of the six portraits in the series represents the dreams of artists and, in some cases, friends who, themselves, have directly affected Tom’s own dreams-including one artist who does not have a portrait but is represented in all six of the paintings. The distinct abstract style of the background is a direct homage to Tom’s former neighbor, the painter Sam Francis.

Tom Everhart is the only artist in the world licensed to utilize Charles Schulz’s Peanuts characters. Schulz never wanted to have an illustrator step into his shoes and continue to draw the Peanuts comic strip after he could no longer do so. Peanuts was something very personal to him and he was determined to keep it that way. But when he saw the direction they were taking in Everhart’s paintings, he saw a future that he never could have anticipated. Tom’s new vision of Schulz’s creations has been exhibited in some of the largest museums around the world, including the Louvre, and has been collected by a very impressive list of collectors.
