Beautiful painting, Steve. Congratulations for your sale! This title reminds me of the song by Carly Simon, “That’s the Way I’ve Always Heard It Should Be.” I cannot believe that song was released in April of 1971. I remember it well. LF Janet 💕

Steve Henderson replied:

Glad the artwork could bring to mind such a nice memorable song. Thank you, Janet.

What dreams are made of...romantic and soothing

Steve Henderson replied:

Absolutely, Jim. We often think of dreams as always remaining dreams outside the realm of “reality.” But romance is real, the salve to the soul is real and if people dream of these then their dreams can indeed become reality. It takes some effort.
