Pinecone with a cherry on top

While we were visiting in LaPine last summer I spent an afternoon photographing still lifes designed with the things we had on the property. With no distractions (Ken was busy playing lumberman), I had a great time creating and arranging various "portraits" with the materials that were on hand. If you're following along, you'll see many of these translated into loose pastels. Yes, loose. It's an exercise in trying not to include all the details or be perfect about shapes, but just enjoying the process of making art. It is a lot more fun that way.

  1. Love that shiny cherry on top. The stem is so jaunty.
