The Gallery: Still Life

This week's Gallery prompt is still life.  It strikes me as an odd term.  Because life isn't still at all.  Especially when you live with a toddler!  And even when you sit and just breathe.  An object may be still, but is it life?  Or is it because for the moments you are drawing / painting / photographing it, it comes to life, because you notice it, and the light falling on it and around it.  Oof!  Enough with the pretentious postulating. 

Here's my contribution...




And here's a contribution from Jake. 
The stillness left after the whirlwind of his creativity.  (And yes, it is on the wall).
