If there’s one thing in life I’ve learned, there’s always a “honey to do” list. Well in this case, living with my parents, there’s a “daughter to do” list. Mom had been asking for months to rip up the carpet on the stairs and in the upstairs hallway. Carpet all ripped up, then the tedious part, ripping up the nails, staples, and adding a fresh coat of paint going up the stairs and the hallway. Taking a break from the other part of the grunt work, I decided to take some photos of the hammer, pliers, flat head screw driver. Then I was thinking, why not take a photo of the paint and paint brush. Loving to draw things, I decided to call these still life photos.
