As I mentioned yesterday, I am a firm believer that art can be found in the most unusual places.
My daughter used her own money to buy a makeup kit, and she’s been carrying it around the house for a few days now. (She’s only allowed to wear it when we aren’t going anywhere.) When she opened it in the light of the dining room, I noticed how pretty the palette of shadows was.
When I began photographing it, I kept a good part of the makeup sharp. But as I played around with the focus, I decided I liked how it looked better when I deliberately blurred the palette: Makeup kit becomes abstract art.
