I’ve had my eye on this little pitcher for a couple of weeks wanting to use it in a still life. It’s rather old and just a pretty little piece of china I’ve had for a long time.

The grocery store I go to quite often has one of the best and most diverse florist shops in the city so the temptation to get these violets was just to great to resist and I thought they might make an interesting photo with all those ruffled edges. I’ve kept this shot deliberately soft because it’s a girley kind of photo. :-)

    Holly, Holly, Holly. No one does still life like you. The magic of the pose is a ballet for the eyes which in turn becomes a symphony for the soul. Let the magic of the dance continue!!! WOW!!! :-)

  • Wow Dave…..what a wonderfully poetic comment. You’re a writer as well as an artist. Thank you so much for this….my heart is warmed. :-)

    Dear Lady, you have done it to me again……I am removing my batteries and memory stick from my camera as we speak…….I quit! Your still lifes are just so magnificent I do not how to comment.

  • Oh you do make me laugh with a comment like that Joseph. Don’t you dare take those batteries out of your camera for any reason other than to recharge them!! :-D

    I’m so glad you like my still life pieces. Thank you very, very much.

    Oh my goodness!! This is just perfect! Yah I just ditto Joseph! You are the queen of Still Life – your colours sublime, your focus perfect, your DOF wonderful, your backgrounds are excellent, and your compositions timeless. Phhhhttttt!!!!!!!!!!!!! (she says as her skin turns green)

  • Oh my gosh…. I got a phhhhhttttt from you!! :-D :-D I love it. LoL

    Jan, thanks so much for this comment. I was unsure about this one and I let it sit for a while before I held my breath and clicked ‘show this work to others’…..so thank you for such a detailed comment.

    Ha! Your skin is green? You should see mine everytime I look at “Freedom” or “Little Shivers” or “Dearly Departed” or “Sunday Afternoon”. Hey, what’s Sunday Afternoon doing so many pages back on your gallery anyway? That’s such a stunner…..shouldn’t it be on the front page of your profile?

    Bravo Holly! Your composition, lighting, subject………………..all are magnificent. I bow to the Still Life Queen!

  • Carolyn, I will confess to you I’m a bit overwhelmed at such wonderful and generous responses to this. I so appreciate the kindnesses and at the same time I’m so aware of how much I have yet to learn. Thank you so much for all your support and encouragement and please keep sending your advice….your eyes and opinion are highly valued.

    I agree, Your Royal Majesty; I don’t know anybody who can top this. It’s overwhelmingly beautiful; perfect in every respect. I think you ought to write a How To book to teach us all the art of still life. I’d buy a copy hot off the press! This is absolutely flawless work.

  • LoL Bonnie….THIS from the woman who produced “To My Sweetheart”? Now THAT is a flawless work!!! I’m so glad you like this one…I’m always a bit hesitant before I post a photo and I was especially so with this one so your comment is very much appreciated! :-)

    The colours go wonderfully together…as usual you have a keen eye for the perfect grouping…immensely well done Holly…you can really do magic with your Still Lifes….

  • Janis, this is such a lovely comment and I so appreciate your words. Thank you very much. I really do hope to expand my horizons in still life photography and your wonderful encouragement makes me want to keep on keeping on. :-)

    Such a wonderful compilation of interesting objects gathered together as only you can! This has a romantic flair and dare I say Victorian feel to it! Your choice of subject matter is always inspirational and your sense of compositon, display, and treatment is unparalelled!

  • Oh thank you Joanne!! I really appreciate your use of the word ‘romantic’ for that is what I was attempting in this. I’m so very glad you like it! :-)
