Then toward the end of the session someone asked what was the floral looking stuff behind me. I had no idea. Usually I can’t see that stuff in the evening in a zoom session. I had been so perplexed over why my face was showing so pale and washed out tho the light was not on it, let alone knowing or seeing what was in the background. And I have not been able to look up well as I move around.
Then I remembered what I thought was showing behind me - a long fantasy landscape painted on a wooden door panel I’d found years ago in my old lower Manhattan neighborhood. Except it was not that at all. It actually is a large painting of a gladiolus single bloom almost floating above land, (ala O’Keeffe ). The painting I had described, sits on top of the nearby bookcase. On my west wall facing me, that I can see, is a view imagined thru pale blue flowing curtains as if to be made of sky themselves. There is a little pond out there. The walls too are sky of sorts.
Here are pics of these paintings. I cannot hold onto the phone properly to get these lined up the way I want. But it gives the idea.
