I had built a simple still life "stage" out of pieces of cardboard and I wanted to try it out. I cut a "window" in the side of the stage and shined a powerful light through it. I liked the effect of strong light from one direction.
This isn't a very accomplished still life, obviously, but there are things I like about it. When I first finished it, I felt it was a complete failure, but a couple of days later it didn't seem that bad. So the subject matter may be a bit weird but it's a first attempt. I'll keep working at it.
