Asking a writer what he thinks about criticism is like asking a lamppost what it feels about dogs.

Bigger Light


I came to work this morning to find a huge box on my desk. I received this lamp/magnifying glass in the mail.

I wanted it for when I'm painting from a photo - better light, greater detail.

I've plugged it in and the light is so clear it seems almost abnormal. But then I'm accustomed to the yellowing effect of "normal" indoor lighting. The magnifying lens has a nice sheath for it to protect it from scratches.

The clip is quite strong. I picked that for mobility. Plus my drafting table in my bedroom can tilt, so a clip-on light will move with the angle of the surface.

If you need to do detail work on your artwork or hand crafts, for $70 (that includes shipping), it's worth it. Good product.

I think I'm going to use the light to restart my current painting. I want to paint bigger. I'll finish up the current effort as a simple 4x6 picture that I can frame and give to someone, and then work on a larger scale, like 8x10.
