Ideas Made of Light Before I say anything else, if you’re an artist you should go buy both of James Gurney’s books about painting. If you like the approach this blog takes to analyzing paintings, you’ll love Gurney’s approach in these books. The one this painting is from is Color and Light: A Guide for the Realist Painter, and his first one is Imaginative Realism: How to Paint What Doesn’t Exist. (As a former technical writer I also like the presentation – each topic is a 2-page spread with a summary up-front, clear text, and a number of illustrations.) OK, plug over, but they’ve both helped me out tremendously.

Banned Book Week: Tips for Teaching Censorship Banned Books Week is celebrating thirty years of highlighting “the benefits of intellectual freedom and drawing attention to the harms of censorship by spotlighting actual or attempted banning of books across the United States, including books commonly taught in secondary schools.” 1 This year, Banned Books Week will be held September 30th through October 6th. Free Speech vs. Questionable Material According to the American Library Association, 326 books were challenged in 2011. Because most challenges are not reported to the ALA, it is believed that this represents about one quarter of all challenges made in school and public libraries. The First Amendment protects the content of books. The Art of Heinrich Kley Heinrich Kley was born April 15, 1863, in Karlsruhe, Germany, and studied art with Ferdinand Keller at the Karlsruhe Akademy and with C. Frithjob Smith in Munich. He started out as an illustrator and a painter of murals, focussing on portraits, still lifes, animals, and landscapes. By the turn of the century Kley’s interest changed to modern industrial life, including factories, blast furnaces, ship docks, industrial buildings, and machinery. One of his best-known oil paintings from this time period is "Tiegelstahlguss bei Krupp" (Crucible steel casting with Krupp).

Saint Petersburg, Russia-based artist Alice Macarova recently completed a new project called Vulpes Vulpes, a triptych featuring adorable red foxes. As the 22-year-old told us, "I chose foxes because I love to draw animals. Besides that, I wanted to work with bright red and orange colors."
