Still life with a blue ball and flowers

This is one of a few images in my gallery that was actually thought out with some meaning in mind.
A few years ago we had an exhibition of local artists on my kibbutz, based on a historic book with chants from the early days of the Kibbutz (dating back to the 40's, I think).

Loosly translated the verse goes:
We shall dance inspite of everything
Make our heart forget the daily toil
Even so we will dance and sing
Who will grant us a happy festival?


Sound bad (the original rhymes...), but the setup in these old days was lots pf hard work with not much to show for it.

So I tried to show a combination of work, happiness, togetherness - all in the frame of a simple cummunal society...

There were a few versions: The original, the one presented in the exhibition was Out of The Garden. I wasn't happy with the light and played with it adding and eliminating things as I always do, ending with this one, and with Possible Solutions.

The names came much later and have nothing to do with the original meaning...

Wow. It almost looks like it spells something out; like my mind keeps wanting to try and read it.
Amazing how simple objects you use could invoke such a reaction. Nice work! :-)

Interesting gallery, the pay of light, texture and other would, at first glance appear gawdy or mis-matched but it all comes together extremely well. Good work indeed.
