Dreaming about painting

I keep dreaming about painting.  I dreamed extensively about it last night and was very excited about my dream ideas when I woke up, but immediately forgot them--wahn.  The night before last, I dreamed I was painting a water scene.  There was a twisting bay or inlet with five rowboats arranged in the foreground in a slightly haphazard but pleasing way.  Each boat had a man in it fishing--some were standing and some sitting,  The boats were all white, but each had a different colored stripe  just under the bow.  The trees in the background were bright with autumn colors.  (But in the dream, the colors of the boat stripes didn't really color coordinate with the scenery--one stripe was a sort of industrial pink and another a sort of industrial grey-blue.)
