Snowflakes in a Jar



An interesting still life.

The jar holds the dried remains of textile dye I had used to paint fabrics. The jar is not airtight so they slowly dried, leaving a residue of both the pigment and the salts used to stabilize them in the form of those lovely snowflakes inside the jar.

The day was dark and rainy, but the outdoors still held the best light to be able to catch this. The chair and its peeling paint become a part of the scene.
