Candlelight, See Right


Click Here to Bid (6x6in.)

For this one I turned off the light in my shadowbox and lit this one small candle. That said, I still had my windows open and the light on that I paint by, which let some light into my box from the front. But I am loving that soft light.

Recently I got a very nice email from a fellow who said he was inspired by my paintings to write a song called "Still Life." The musician, Jakob Reinhardt, just put out an album, with one of my paintings as the cover. : ) I think he's incredibly talented! If you listen and are inclined to buy the album, you can use discount code "downatthedinghy" to get half off.

I just finished your book on daily painting. I enjoyed it very much -- your voice, your advice, and your art. I mostly paint figurative and your work has inspired me to try more still lives. Thank you.

Always a pleasure to read your thoughts, and I am not surprised that you inspired Jakob to write a song, you are such an inspiration to a lot of people, many more than you can imagine, I'm sure. Love the dim light and the candle, btw. :)
