A 14 × 14 inch, acrylic painting of the sky. A journal entry is handwritten on the painting:

“This is really stressful painting this during a silent retreat because it’s clearly against the rules. The first three days here have been tough. Lots of “attachment” keeps cropping up. Maybe it’s hard psychologically in contrast to the fun time I just spent with Ella in Claremont riding bikes and watching basketball. Also, I’m having trouble finding a comfortable sitting position, but at least there isn’t much pain.
