I had a terrible time painting today! Nothing went right and I ended up wiping away what I had done. (Thank goodness oil paint is so forgiving.) I stretched a new 48″ by 72″ canvas ready for new work. I’ll do some gesso tomorrow, both on this big canvas and on the multitude of panels waiting for some attention.

I woke up this morning and meditated for a while, drifting into one of those lovely lucid dream  states. I found myself in a doorway of a darkened street, facing a door. A beautiful Indian lady in a sari and with a red dot on her forehead walked past me accompanied by a shadowy man and I turned to her and asked if she would help me open this door. She laughed gently and said “Of course, but you are standing in the way” and walked on.
