"Painters, do not fear perfection. You will never achieve it! 
If you are mediocrities, you may try as you will to paint terribly 
badly, but people will still see that you are mediocre."
Salvador Dali

Something about Freud and dreams

According to Freud the dream has  two parts. 
The manifest and the latent content. 
The manifest content is what a person would remember as soon as they wake up. Freud gives little importance to this part.
The latent content holds the true meaning of the dream – the forbidden thoughts and the unconscious desires. These appear in the manifest content but are disguised and hard to be understood or recognized. 

Symbolism in dreams 
Objects such as tree-trunks, ties, all weapons, sticks, balloons, rockets and other elongated objects were all symbols for the male organ/an erection. 
Boxes, cases, chests, cupboards, ovens, suitcases and other hollow objects represented the female genitalia.
A room means a woman but so could the whole house, a door or the whole dream landscape. 
Walking up a staircase, steps or ladders could also signify a sexual act.
