The snapshot

This was a sentimental study of various family memorabilia that I found in my attic. War letters, old photos, a diary and a postcard.

This is way more photographic detail than I like to paint but it was a great exercise.

Artist William Harnett might have appreciated this trompe l'oeil style painting.

This is such a great still life. I'd like to see it in person some day so I could enjoy the level of detail that the photo can't convey.
