Daily Creativity #67: Recreate a Still Life Painting

Still life paintings are full of hidden meaning. Look carefully at “Vanitas” by Pieter Claesz (1597-1661). Make a list of at least 6 items that you can identify in it, and think about what they convey. What would some equivalent objects be in today’s world? Now, find those objects in your own home. Arrange them in a similar composition to the original painting, and make a drawing, painting, or photograph of your own.
