PAINTING RULES

A "working" portrait 
of California abstract 
painter Jerry Carniglia 
creating 
his canvases while 
he and the 
filmmakers 
were 
fellows at the 
famed MacDowell 
Colony in New 
Hampshire.  
The film captures the 
artist's creative 
method and 
inspiration - from 
Aristotle to Keats to 
Nietzsche  - and 
serves as more than 
just a primer on paint; 
it's a primer on life.

more than a primer on paint;  it's a primer on life
