This is not new. If you look closely, you’ll see some dirty fingerprints and a crease from a bulldog clip.
This photo has been clipped to an unfinished pastel that I stuck behind my “studio” [ie bedroom] door for six years. SIX YEARS!

In June 2010, I had worked on this during a week-long residency at Dorland Mountain Arts Colony. I was recovering from a mastectomy and frantically making some art before starting chemo. [I’m fully recovered, btw. I won, cancer lost.] Why unfinished? If I remember correctly, I didn’t have the proper red pastel on hand. The clouds were looking too orange and it was too similar to Big Orange Cloud from the same series.

Looks like I’ve got some reds in the pastel box now:

No more excuses.

This week’s theme is Look Up.
