It's Still Life: Chapter 11

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.

"I kept adding 'everything but the kitchen sink' to my still life...the decided to shoot the kitchen sink instead ;)"

Debrina: Debbie Price-Ewen
"Alicia Caudle and I are always sending each other parcels and this is a selection of the wonderful things she has sent me. Pure inspiration!"

Alicia Caudle
"This is a still life of some of my favorite things -- undamaged Frozen Charlottes, a Victorian era doll and head, vintage watch parts, nature bits and some of my small animal skulls."

Karin Lynn Cumming
"This still life sits in my family room. Everything I do in my home is a still life to me."
This post is the last in the "It's Still Life Series". You can always link to all the posts from my sidebar.
