Dead Nature

Still life developed as a separate category in the Netherlands in the last quarter of the 16th century and the English term derives from stilleven: still life, which is a calque while Romance languages (and Russian) tend to use terms meaning dead nature.

So one autumn day I tried to take a photograph in the spirit of great Dutch and Flemish painters. Just for fun, just to try things. (it is not my cup of thee but you can learn of it) 


  1. i like trying things too.
    such as drawing silly things.
    and learning how to deal with life.
    love life.

  2. I once painted "dead flowers" abstract.

  3. Thank you, ladies!

    @Sung-Hee (Regina) Hong: I once photographed dead flowers......not abstractly, but vividly. Stay tuned, I will post it soon....(when I find the file!)
