Still Life

Passing by an art book left out on the coffee table, I chuckled at its poingnancy, "Still Life".  An oxymoron worthy of contemplation. A classic concept turns contemporary. I thought of drawing class, or even more challenging...painting class. The art instructor of my teenage years setting up a tiresome still life that had been posing for the last 20 intro classes -with renderings from past students displayed around the room, showing its promise. If you've got the patience, that still life will be there for you-unwavering, unapologetic...just there.

I asked Chehalis Hegner to play in this concept with me.  With the first signs of Spring showing on her farm, she created these thoughtful images.
