Whew! What a relief. I have loved working on this piece but it has been such a struggle to get up to work on it through this abdominal pain. I added the silvery gray to the left of the pinnacle yesterday and this morning, then brushed that in. This morning I added luminescent silvery oil pastel to the “white” portions, so depending on where you are in the room, it looks like mother of pearl. It reminds me of Remedios Varo adding real mother of pearl to one of her paintings. Wow. I’m so very inspired by her!
Pain persists. Didn’t sleep well at all night before last, but last night very well. So glad to have finished this painting so I can start the new red cave industrial. Messy and red and cathartic in the best sort of way. Very tired of resting, and as you can imagine, very very tired of so much pain.
Beautiful weather though, and we are enjoying that perspective. Take care!
