|Vases: October 2013 (available for purchase)|
As I go through my photo archives of last year's initial experiments with still life compositions this image keeps calling me. I cannot tell you how beautiful the lines and colors are in that center rear vase that is made from wood.
I love it! The other pieces are lovely on their own but the vase is so singularly striking and precious.
When I started to collect items for this still life I wasn't 100% sure what I was going to photograph. I went through Karl's collectibles upstairs in his man cave and pulled these items from a variety of different corners and shelves. On their own they were nice but together they really complimented each other.
It feels important to document these collectibles that he has accumulated over the years so they are remembered in an image so that they have a second life beyond their short life on our shelf.
