To sleep, perchance to dream ACEO

I've been playing with the idea of making an international symbol for "dreaming". You know, one of those white symbols on a blue background that everybody recognizes around the world -- like the one for women's restrooms (that poor female figure in a triangular skirt) or the knife-fork-spoon trio for restaurant. What would a symbol for dream look like?

Here's my take on it.

I didn't want the solid blue background. Instead, I liked the fuzzy gold/blue mix. Dreams are kind of fuzzy sometimes. The eye has somewhat of an Egyptian feel, so the gold fits in.

I tried a cloud (instead of the eye) above the sleeping figure, but that seemed vacuous. I like the eye better.

I think it's a great idea and I love the colors.
