He paint this dreams in three parts, each part having three sequences. The results is the nine paintings, every panting representing a scene from the three dreams. Each painting has attached a text written by the artist like in a screen play.

Scene IV - The Letter & The Mountains - FM 

I took a few steps on the black empty road that led like an arrow straight into a strip of perfect snow-covered mountains, that were lying somewhere in the far distance. The road cut through an enormous sea of snow that was stretching in all directions as far as the eye could see. I held a white envelope, that had a destination address written on it, somewhere behind those mountains. That was a long way to go on foot, and the road did not seem to be busy at all. So I started to look around, to find a possible solution... This came quickly in the form of a roofed bus station that I did not notice at first, because it was white and covered with snow. I took some steps towards it, but I stopped in shock, at the sight of 3 white polar bears that were sleeping under the roof of the bus station. As soon as I saw them, I reached for my gun with my left hand. But the holster was empty...The gun was either in a drawer at the office, or somebody from the office must have taken it. I started to look around again to find a way to reach civilization. And, again, I noticed a small cubical white building across the street that had no door and a sign above the entrance that read “BAR”. I thought that “there must be a phone in there, so I can call the office and find out what to do and most importantly where my damn gun was”.
