still life at zero gravity

















You know when you have an idea in your head for a picture but it doesn't even come out half as well as you intended? Well, this is one of those times. Instead of the objects looking like they are floating in space, they just look like they've been piled on top of one another on a flat surface. The zero gravity chamber wasn't working, so having the floating still life to work from was mostly in my imagination. Neither was my brain or else I would have realised that a background to set it against might have helped with the illusion of weightlessness. My sincere apologies. I kinda like the way the panda turned out grumpy though. That wasn't intended either.

I was laughing the entire time I was reading. Well at least, despite the gravity in this piece, it turned out interesting and cute, especially the little panda.

I can get them to float when I turn my head to a 90-degree angle. Yes, cool grumpy panda.

Maybe the panda is grumpy because of that apple on top of him. haha I love it!

And, yes, you can enlist my kitties, if you like.... But you'll have to let me know when the birthday is! :-)
