(Shawn Allen O'Neal)
Dream artist SAO (Shawn Allen O'Neal) died in 2008; there are several memorial sites for him, my favorite being http://www.asdreams.org/psi2008/artgallery/sao.htm. His dreams are often long and intricate, featuring advice and guides, imagery rivaling Dali (see Stygian Sentinels below) and Magritte (see Science is a Building), and occasional ESP (The Boats). His eye and verbal memory are equally sharp and telling. Highly recommended for dream-painters!

|THE BOOK: by SAO (Shawn Allen O'Neal); October 1989, a mandala-like dream-icon
The crystalline figure on the cover of the book in my dream seemed to hold as many answers as its title...
|CYMBALS: by SAO (Shawn Allen O'Neal); August 1997, a lucid dream on, um, cymbalism
Hundreds of dusty drawers, clearly not not touched in years. I open one
to find cymbals. Some part of me knows it's a dream and sees the pun...
|SCIENCE IS A BUILDING THAT COMES ONLY HALFWAY TO THE GROUND:
by SAO (Shawn Allen O'Neal); March 2001, a painting of a dream-scene.
In the golden light of a primal Eden, my friends and I flock naked
through emerald glades like wild deer, until the tower approaches...
|THE STYGIAN SENTINELS: by SAO (Shawn Allen O'Neal); 1970s, a recurring astral dream.
The Crocodile King & the Geisha Queen, the couple who guard
the bridge over the River Styx, seem to quarrel a lot...
|THE TELLTALE HEART: by SAO (Shawn Allen O'Neal); 1970s, ominously prophetic nightmare
High up a scaffold, I was beating the chaff off a huge seed, unable to stop. I was beating my own heart...
|THE TOOTH: by SAO (Shawn Allen O'Neal), 2003?, an epic, oracular, baffling dream
Psychics give me an incomprehensible reading. A book from the tree-library gives only Victorian dating advice.
At last a madman gives me a treasure-box holding a tooth that unfolds into slices carved in unreadable symbols...
