while unpacking, sorting, organizing and finding space for everything in my art studio, i found, in order to keep my mind and body from running out the door, i began to set up vignettes, still lives, of items i’d discovered in boxes. i hadn’t noticed, at first, that i was creating them. after a few days, i looked around and realized how many i had set up. it was my minds way of continuing the creative act even while not being creatively active. they were spontaneous and fun.
