Every so often I revisit the thrift stores in search of new still life objects, and rarely do I leave empty handed.  My most recent trips were no exception.  And now in turning to still life again, I have a bunch of brand new-to-me things to look at and study.  I first use them to make drawings.  I want to understand each object a little better before I commit to doing a large still life set up or a complicated painting.  So, that's what I'm doing lately -- turning my new still life stuff round in my mind, examining the possibilities for each thing, getting ideas.  I write about some of this at my blog. 


Sometimes I draw in pen, as in the notebook drawing above.  Sometimes I use other media and focus on individual objects.  But I love to plan and dream before I paint.
