Mr. Big Stuff Dreams (Andy Warhol), Homie Dreams Suite Titled Mr. Big Stuff because Woodstock is a little person with a big punch. But also because he represents Warhol (a close friend to Everhart), whose influence on Tom also carried a big punch, as he caused him to see art differently than it had ever been seen before.

In this stunning series of portraits, Everhart has posed Snoopy, Charlie Brown, and the rest as if they have grown bored while posing for the painter and have just started to drift off to sleep. They try to hold their pose as if they are awake, but yet they float away. Tom explains that he wanted to show them entering into the world of dreams, as he believes this is where all of us (artists or not) creatively grow the most. And that is also why they are all smiling because they enjoy their own “happy, creative thoughts.”

Each of the six portraits in the series represents the dreams of artists and, in some cases, friends who, themselves, have directly affected Tom’s own dreams-including one artist who does not have a portrait but is represented in all six of the paintings. The distinct abstract style of the background is a direct homage to Tom’s former neighbor, the painter Sam Francis.
