Art Friday: Sleeping
Something we all do, not just humans but animals too - SLEEP. We can't survive without it and we don't seem to get enough of it. Here are a range of painting all about sleeping - something some mothers haven't enjoyed for a very long time.
I have to admit I really do the love the animal paintings in this collection. There is something so sweet about a cat or dog curled up asleep.
PS If you live to be 75-80 years old you will spend around 25 years of your life sleeping so it is worth investing in a comfortable bed and pillow.
|Fact: 12% of people have black and white dreams, |
before the coloured television the number was 75% (??)
|Fact: The average person wakes up about 6 times per night.|
|Fact: Teenagers need between 8.5 and 9.25 hours of sleep each night.|
|Some researchers believe dreams are a meaningless byproduct of sleep and consciousness (not sure about this one?)|
|Do cows sleep standing up? No they need to sit down, but it isn't sleeping it is more like dozing.|
|This one is my favourite.|
And if you have time, check out these photos by Jessica Shyba. Jessica's son and their new pup enjoying their afternoon sleep together. They are adorable: http://www.demilked.com/theo-and-beau-toddler-puppy-jessica-shyba/
|And yes fish sleep/rest but not like us! As for mice (like this cute guy), they sleep up to 13 hours per day.|
