No idea where to go, what to do.
I look at intuition and ask, You got anything?
Intuition shrugs. I got nothin'.
Suddenly I remember years ago when I had a frozen shoulder, a condition called adhesive capsulitis in which fibrin deposits act like glue and form attachments between tissues that should not be attached. Physical therapy was prescribed. Very painful, that therapy. But it returned me to the freedom of full range of motion.
Time for physical therapy with this painting. Adhesions have formed. I've become attached (again), and my creative range of motion is frozen.
I take a deep breath and brave the therapy. First I paint over a few areas to decrease the busyness a little. Then I take out a one-inch brush and quinacridone red, paint a great big crimson donut on top of my composition, and cut the whole thing into quadrants.
Practicing nonattachment. Regaining flexibility.

As is always the case with PT, I'm given exercises to do at home and I'm scheduled for a followup appointment. Stay tuned.
