Okay, today I set up a still life in a wine rack stand thingy that I got at the thrift store. I taped cardboard around it and put a lamp to one side. It worked very well. I am excited about the possibilities. Here is my first still life from “life”. Is that what you call it? It is an 8×10 stretched canvas which I had toned with burnt umber acrylic, beforehand. Earlier, I had gotten the apple out of the fridge for a snack and it was so pretty I had to paint it.
Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces I would still plant my apple tree. — Martin Luther
