Dream Geode

Art Journal:
This is an image of a waking dream I had the day that I did this work.
The geode was not a closed stone however but an endless cavern of crystal.
A golden white glistening light was coming from the infinity inside.
The young woman was trying to climb up and see inside.
I may want to try this again someday because I didn't really catch this the way I saw it in the dream, but this is close enough to jog my memory if I ever do give it another try.
I was still real timid about using color and the proper way to use oil pastels at this point.
