I’m loving the contemporary still life compositions that keep popping up in advertising and my Pinterest feed. I’ve rounded up a few that all include some sort of produce (my fave prop du jour), a seemingly random mix of objects or just the hint of something a little obscure. They are all a bit messy somehow and are reminding me of Irving Penn, though not quite as abject as his work, but still celebrating texture and the rawness of reality. There is the classic balance of colour and shape throughout of course, but I find something extra intriguing about each of these.
Speaking of still life, I have just got back into yoga after at least a one year hiatus…it was amazing to me how uncomfortable I was with being still. Physically I was surprisingly fit, but I’m definitely not used to being present and calm. #momlife
