mantel pieces

A Moleskine, Pitcher and Apple; casein on board; 8"x5"; 2017

The mantel over my fireplace makes for a great place to set-up a still life. 

And no - my wall there isn't pink - the color comes from some pink paper I taped up behind the scene.  And the shelf is actually a golden oak color.  What you see is gray drawing paper that I folded and laid on top of the mantel. 

I'm not sure why there's so much openness above the objects.  It just felt right, at the time, to give them a lot of breathing space.
