I've been ready a really good book on painting. Those of you who read

this blog and are artists, might know it. "Alla Prima, Everything I

Know About Painting" by Richard Schmid. It's out of print, but still

attainable... for a price. My friend Noah was nice enough to let me

borrow it. I have to say it's the best written book about painting

I've come across, ever. The painting you see is an orange slice. I

had the light behind it and was trying to capture the glow from with

in the orange. Needless to say, I failed miserably. But I'm going to

try at it again. I think painting from a dark surface is what got me

me hung up.
