|"Toxic Still Life" inspiration photo|
This is what I get from Wikipedia...."A still life is a work of art depicting mostly inanimate subject matter, typically commonplace objects which may be either natural (food, flowers, dead animals, plants, rocks, or shells) or man-made (drinking glasses, books, vases, jewelry, coins, pipes, and so on)."
So rusted barrels of toxic waste are certainly inanimate objects that are man made. So does this composition qualify as a still life? Thoughts???

What do I want to accomplish with the barrels and the jewel toned color scheme? I wanted it to look "beautiful" from a distance. However, when you look at it up close you see the tags that say poison and danger and then realize that this is not beautiful at all.
My goal this year to make quilts with meaning to add to my energy/environmental series. You can see the rest of the series by clicking on the tab under the header for my blog.
