Just what could Chloe Pink and Salvador Dali possibly have in common?

Chloe Pink (2006-) the cartoon spokes-person for girls wants you to follow your dreams. Salvador Dali (1904-1989) the most famous surrealist of all time, liked to paint dreams.

So, I guess that makes them a "dream team."

In his best known piece, "Persistence of Memory," Dali painted a landscape with realistic looking time pieces melting over a table and a tree branch. This composition, along with many of his works, looked like a dream brought to life.

What a coincidence! In Chloe Pink's new "Doodle & Dream" book, that's exactly what she wants you to do: Bring your own dreams to life by coloring, sketching, journaling and building your self-confidence along the way. What a surprise that Dali's and Chloe's dream worlds are colliding at the same time.

Thanks to Art Access, the "All Mixed Up Art Class for Kids" I teach in Snellville, GA is heading to the High Art Museum on September 9, to see the Salvador Dali exhibit! In fact, when I opened the email saying our class would receive free admission for 20 children, I thought
I was dreaming!

Coincidentally, another "dreamy" character will be at the Decatur Book Festival on September 4 & 5. You can start following your dreams at the Chloe Pink booth #134 with The Chloe Pink Doodle & Dream Coloring Book signing and "What's Your Dream?" coloring contest.
