61: Still Life

A few of the object living on the kitchen windowsill at the moment. ~A dessicated orange slice, discovered in a box of toys that is pulled out only periodically. I think the texture and light are amazing, and I can't bring myself to throw it out. ~A river rock picked up by my son and brought home by my husband. It too has lovely texture and light. ~The last mosaic I completed, an experiment in size (tiny) and technique (reverse or indirect).

I like the first one best, overall, but I thought these had something to offer as well. 


  1. Lovely for something most people would think was "gross" :)

  2. Just saw these on flickr and knew the back story to the orange would be here. A thing of beauty only a mother could love. ;) The one that's your favorite is also mine.

    Glad it was an orange and not something grosser.

  3. I love that the mothers get it. :) It looks candied to me, but I wouldn't dare taste it.

  4. The first one is my favorite too.
