Doing the box thing again, and really enjoying it. Some things about it are crazy difficult, yes, but because it creates this contained environment for your still life subject it forces a further measure of thoughtfullness, and creates a satisfying illusion.
In other news, tomorrow I'll be dropping off Hover, Geometry, Ballet, Evening Tea II, and Ocean Glass at my new Durham gallery, Bull City Art and Frame- these are some really great pieces, and if you're in the area you should definitely come by. They're in Brightleaf Square, which is a wonderful place to visit anyways. Mt Fuji is right next door, they have the best sushi, and Morgan Imports is across the street and that is the coolest little has-absolutely-everything store ever.
