Still Life

1.15.2017
Over the holidays, my favorite lady Maddy and I got together to shoot some photos. I had the weird idea of freezing some flowers in a block of ice as an homage to winter. I decided to call the series “Still Life” because they are literally a frozen moment in the life of these flowers, and, I mean, I’m an art history nerd so I will always look for new ways to honor old concepts.

So here's the thing: I have been working on creating a new blog. It will still be Scarlett and Giselle, but I want to host it myself and have a lot more control over the design. The annoying part is that I don't really...know...how to do that. I'm not great at HTML and every time I think about learning it I somehow wander away from my computer...I don't know how it happens...I guess I didn't retain the passion I had for graphic design in my Neopets days. But anyways, I am figuring it out and hopefully will have a new site soon. I was going to save these photos for that, but I really love them and I want to share. So please enjoy and know that this is kind of the direction I want to go in! Yay!

  3. reeaaaaalllly cool idea. I love putting things in ice. Once in highschool I put a barbie in a giant ice cube with her hand reaching out of it dramatically (to then use it as a reference photo for a painting), and my step mom had just moved in with us, opened the freezer, and wondered what kind of kid she had just gotten herself involved with... HA!

    Anyway really digging these photos and how you play with light and material in them in such an interesting way
