A very well thought out Still Life, one which has been captured and worked through very well.

Thanks Guys.

This was a composition that came at the end of about an hour of tutting, swearing and head shaking.

Very nicely set up. Many interesting curios Keith.
A lovely arrangement.

By the looks of the skull, you've lost weight since last we met. Grin

I looked at this last night and thought "I should really like this" but for some reason it didn't quite work for me. Something to do with the bottles, I really want to bring one forward a bit.

When I opened it again this morning I can see why, it looks like 2 rows of items, bringing one forward would break that and give a nice crossed composition. I wonder if that was the consternation you had when setting it up?

I know I'm been awkward (again).

Oh love (if that's the right word) the message running through this btw - all items linked with the ultimate outcome - I think ...

Only one I'm not sure on the meaning is the butterfly, is that the soul /personality of the person? and shouldn't the flame be extinguished - or is that the next in the series?

P.S. Just noticed something by accident (how it was on iPad after finishing scrolling) if you crop out the candle completely it's a much stronger composition - but that I guess losses a key element of the back story.. Or does it?

The Butterfly is there as a very transient form of life or one that perceived as being so, and in this case it is sat on some rotting fruit but the candle replaces the clock as a 'timed' element....Ultima Necat - the last kills, as in the final hour.

These are just a very small part of a much larger collection that will all loosely follow a theme.

Thanks guys
