3:45 PM: AFTER Hving been away for 5 days i was tired & kind of in shock the first 3 hours in my studio. and then, as often happens, i saw that something needed to be done to purple rock II, so i snapped into action. i actually think i was able to do decent work! using a mirror i borrowed from our friend kat, i shot a few photos of the painting reflected in this ornate mirror. bleary eyes, i’m returning to the house to follow the news about the disasterous fire at notre dame cathedral in paris.
