Rocks, Grape Stems, Chestnut Hull, & Apple Leaf

Years ago my Father gave me an a couple of little brass framed curio cases. I planned to use them in still life models. The brass is thin, moves around easily causing the loss of octagon panes (as it gains more vintage character). As a collection depository for bits of stuff, the case has become a still life on its own.  Small items are perfect for sketching because they don't take up much room, and can go just about anywhere.


  1. Dear Maywyn - this sounds like a wonderful place to stash those bits and pieces of nature that you want to keep. Take care friend and have a great week-end. Hugs!

    1. Hi Debbie,
