he did suggest making a numbered tag for each picture with an explanation or quote on the back, which i'm considering. i also like the idea (alternately) of a diagram of the layout, with maybe a line about each picture underneath the diagram.
painting light is kicking my ass too, what with having to learn how to use oil paint again. i hate you, oil paint! you are messy and toxic and you will not dry fast enough, damn you! *months later, i am loving the oil paint.
