Still Life Objects
A gift some dear friends brought back from out West... finally consumed shortly after being immortalized in paint. Tasty!
Sometimes, it's difficult to get around me in the food store if I'm in a still life painting frame of mind. I stop and stare while imagining what things would look like in paint. A few jars caught my eye today... pickled peppers, olives! I'm a fool for colorful, shiny things!
Also ended up with grapes, lemons, and a box of clementines. Enough inspiration for the week.
Hunting for still life objects can turn any shopping trip into a great adventure.
