It's Still Life: Chapter 3

Welcome to the 5th edition of The Pulse -- The State of the Art -- a survey in words and pictures of the online artist community. The Pulse is a collaborative project that aims to introduce you to new artists, help you get to know familiar faces even more, and allow you access into the creative hearts and minds of a very talented crew of individuals. More than 130 artists have answered a series of questions which make up The Pulse. Their responses will be presented in a series of online posts which will run every Sunday.

Style File, Techniques & Tools, and Master Class were the first three projects posted and links to all these posts can be found on the sidebar of my blog. The fourth project, It's Still Life, continues now...

Participants were asked to photograph a still life that you create using an array of objects.
Erin Perry
"This is a picture of a typical swap meet score. I love arranging my finds afterwards and getting a shot of them all together."

Jessica Walthall

Adrienne "Dree" Berry

Laura A. Pace
"Red Still Life - This is typical of the still lifes I set up in my studio from which to paint."

Lynn Cohen

Darlene AkA HugGeR Wilkinson
"These are shelves filled with objects that I can make assemblages with. I know it looks like a moge poge, but it works!"

Lisa Sarsfield
"My chosen photo is a still life of leaves, twigs, and bark. I was making a 'landcastle' when I found the mossy bark which was curled like a nest. Finds like this make me very happy!"

Roxanne Evans Stout

Victoria Crowder Payne

Denise Aumick

Stephanie Hilvitz
"I have so many collections, how to decide what to share...this combines a few, Mandala's, tin bugs and roses."

Vivian Williams
"From the Asheville, NC drum circle which takes place in downtown every Friday night."
Next "It's Still Life" will be held on Sunday, June 24th.
