I hope you enjoy translating this painting into a story! Like the other paintings in the "Inner Landscapes" series, I intended it to be read left to right. Perhaps reading it right to left could make for interesting stories, too.
Having told myself not to do any collage till I have more studio space, I found that I couldn't resist. Usually oil pastels aren't used in collage, but hey, I love technical problems! I did some experiments and found that both opaque white oil pastel and the transparent oil pastel blender -- both professional oil pastels from Sennelier -- make it possible to adhere the fibrous unryu paper I love, and here's the result.
Unryu paper has long threads that make it transluscent yet quite strong. I've used this paper for many years, since first discovering it in a marvelous store in Chicago that specialized in Japanese papers. That opened a whole new world to me. By the way, "unryu" means "cloud dragon."
