Every so often, Jean Sampson, painter and teacher (& poet too) sets up a still-life for her class at the McGuffey Art Center. And every so often, I get to photograph it.
They intrigue me, these set-ups, designed to give every student in the room something to focus on. I walk around and take them from different angles.
How I wish I could draw or paint these wonderful confections. They have a still and calm demeanor, which tells me they must be sure of their attraction.
How could they not be? They have been designed to be loved by the eye.
I hope yours has liked seeing them too. Here by the way, is a little snapshot of the painter herself.
