We write to expose the unexposed. If there is one door in the castle you have been told not to go through, you must. Otherwise, you're just be rearranging the furniture in rooms you've already been in. Most human beings are dedicated to keeping that one door shut. But the writer's job is to see what's behind it, too see the bleak unspeakable stuff, and to turn the unspeakable into words - not just any words, but if we can, into rhythm and blues.

Market with Yellow Umbrella - Day Two


A bit more in the center of the painting...

I've limited my palette to cerulean blue, dioxazine purple, permanent light green, cadmium yellow medium, and cadmium dark red.

I'm really looking forward to painting the people.

One other note: if you look at the first picture I took of this, and the one above, notice how yellowed the first picture is. The difference is that in the picture above I've turned off my overhead lights, which feature GE bulbs. They offer bright light, without a doubt, but I need to replace them with these. I have this bulb in a lamp at my drafting table and love it. But $80 for overhead lights seems exorbitant... I'll think about it.
