Book Review: Art Student's League of New York on Painting

As an artist, I have always held the Art Students League in high esteem. This is the art school I wish I had attended.  This book, Art Students League of New York on Painting, Lessons and Meditations on Mediums, Styles and Methods, by James L. McElhinney and the instructors of the Art Students League, gives us the opportunity to peek into the classroom studios of many prestigious artists.
The book is divided into three sections which provide a wealth of information regarding the entire painting process.
The book reads rather like a text book and should probably be required reading for art majors\\\\\

I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review."

goodbye rockabelly

i hardly have words for the rain that falls in my heart tonight..
rocky had to be put down. he was only 4 and a half years old.. He had been a very sick kitten who was not expected to live beyond a few months.. He rallied and grew to be strong and beautiful.  i was fortunate to witness that.miracle.

sadly, today his history betrayed him and he had to be put down..  this is a huge loss ,Coming so soon after kohl's passing....barely 3 weeks,

the house is so quiet tonight as we continue our journeys separately. .   good bye rocky. kohl will be waiting to welcome you when you cross that rainbow bridge.
