When I set this up it had a great glow that I really wanted to capture. A glow through the peeled orange and also a lightness over the whole thing. I was also trying to DEFINE a little less than usual, and capture a feeling instead. It's a step in a direction I want to go. I have to remind myself that I can't get there in one painting ... it's a process. It's my mantra in general, and I find it makes me very happy. Life is a process - enjoy it.
