Tara set us "Still Life" as the subject for The Gallery this week, and it's probably the hardest thing she's set. I wanted to take fruit, or flowers, or a skull, or a flayed ox. But I lack the props, the camera and the talent.
So I thought I'd give you one of my hats. This one, to be precise. Surrounded by the detritus of a millinery workshop.
It's still. It's my new life. It fits...
But it still felt wrong. So I resorted to Google. And found this:
And if Van Gogh can put a hat in a picture, so can I. So, ladies and gentlemen. I give you:
Still Life with Hat and Horrid Worktop (2010)
Oh, and the hat? I made that one too.
Still Life with Yellow Hat (1885) by Vincent Van Gogh. Picture from vangoghgallery.com. Thank you.
