Dante’s Divine Comedy were some of my favorite books in high school. My English teacher encouraged my enthusiasm and recommended I read Richard Matheson’s What Dreams May Come, knowing I would enjoy the allegorical references to the epic poem. I adored the book and was not let down when I watched the movie upon completion of my read. I was browsing through Pinterest a few months ago and came across a gorgeous painting by Michelle Armas. Her brilliant use of color and transcendental strokes instantly brought me back to the abstract-dreamlike scenes depicted in Matheson’s novel. I love when art triggers this type of reaction!
