We are all castles.

This is one of two that I started with oils.  I painted the background with oils because I was looking for a smoother color transition.  Also I painted the women with oils as well.  Once the oil paintings were dry, I superimposed drawings over the faces.  The drawings were done with ink on rice paper.  The idea is to create physical layers that express the layers in psyche.

The second in this series, next to an oil painting I am working on.

 Traveling..... mentally anyway.
 Here are the two women inside their mentally constructed castles.
 Later that day I added a bird and vines and a flower to this one.
 Bugs and flowers here, along with flying birds.  This one has a very radial composition.
