Ladders and Windows

Working on the ‘Marking Time’ project and feeling a bit stuck with what to do next.  I had the tracing of the shadows under the chair, the timelessness of the action of making a painting, the beauty of the autumn colours, and some amazing sunbeams.. a.k.a. Jacobs Ladders, all milling around in my head but not sure what to do with them.

So this time I painted the pattern of the shadows under the chair, using the colours of the sunbeams.  I wanted the light to shine through the tracing paper, and to be well ventilated as white spirit gives me a headache.  Ladders seemed the answer, and gave the illusion of other windows in addition to the stained glass window (frosted) I was painting.. along with other ladderesque symbolism.
