Still Life (Match pack)

21 Nov



I am planning on posting some still life illustrations of very simple, everyday kinds of things.  When I see this it evokes strong memories for me.  My Mom’s father always smoked a pipe and the aroma of the pipe smoke was admittedly very pleasant.  I can remember my grandpa’s hands pulling a match from the pack and then striking the match on the little strip and then lighting his pipe, puffing and drawing to get the tobacco lit just right.  Though I smoked for a stint, I have been successfully smoke free for a couple years now and am not an advocate of smoking.  But I am greatly drawn to images that connect me to my story, and this is one of them.
