Still Life/Still Life

Disparate items line the shelves of this closet,
hidden at the end of the second floor hall
in the Herron School of Art and Design.
Items from the shelves are used to make up
the still lifes for the drawing and painting classes.
I've used them myself for classes I've taken,
but usually found the items too picked over
to make up a coherent grouping.
As they sit here, however, the items
make an interesting tableau of
color and shape.
And here's a picture of another
work in progress,
long distance swimmers Jim B. and
Victoria R. practicing at the Natatorium.

I thought I was looking at a shelf in a Goodwill Store. (-:

Quite an eclectic selection!

I like the work in progress.

Yep, William it does look like an eclectic Goodwill mishmash, but even less ordered.

I've gotten a canvas ready to make a painting from this drawing. I'm sorta reluctant to begin, even though I know I could, once again, gesso over the canvas to start over, if need be.
