I wrote about this pastel still life a while back. It had been sitting for a while as I was so busy with helping rebuild the Lodi Art Center gallery and working on other projects that I was not putting much time into it. I grew weary of re-assembling the set up every time I needed to use the weights.
As you can see, I've been working on it again, based on memory rather than arrangement or photo. The angles of the top red weight were all wrong. I've lots of details still to work out, and I think I need to mute down those books in the background a bit. However, all in all, I like the way it is coming. I've entered it in an upcoming show (the send entry form early and bring work later sort) under the title "Accidental Still Life". Now, I am under deadline to finish it, assuring I won't dawdle about.
