The best part about this still life was the blue towel that I sat the winter squash upon. It reflected a nice blue into the shadows of the squash and it was a nice challenge to get an intense blue in the shadows yet keep them the correct value.

I am an Artist and a programmer currently living in the amazing state of Washington. I have a passion for art, but I'm stubborn as hell with it. My day is complete only when I do some piece of art each day, no matter how small. "There was a dream that was Rome. You could only whisper it. Anything more than a whisper and it would vanish, it was so fragile."
