Here is a detail image from behind the bar of the "expulsion" painting. Since the painting is so big, we are still in "coming together" mode. I know how I will proceed for the rest of the painting, but it's simply a matter of dealing with the accidents/vagaries of making a painting.
In reading list news...I finished Mr. Palomar by Italo Calvino. I think I found the moral center of the paintings completely by accident through Mr. Palomar's endeavors. I started reading it because Invisible Cities had to be transfered to me by the library. Serendipity strikes!
