The above is the progression of my piece for the Vanitas Feature Exhibit at Kaleid Gallery.
I've been working on this piece extensively for the last month and am very happy
with the finished work. Although this is obviously a contemporary group art show,
the idea of vanitas is centuries old and I decided I wanted to take a more traditional approach to the subject. I painted the work from a photograph I took of stuff I had
laying around my room, which I thought fit the theme well.
