Monica Bello, Still Life Proposal.
When I was a little girl I visited Wisconsin with my family. While visiting my mother took me out one afternoon to antique thrift shops. She told me I could pick out what I liked. In the end, I decided upon a miniature glass tea cup set, but soon realized that because it was an antique I could not play with it as freely as I had expected to. Now, as an adult with more control over my actions, I'd like to compose a still life with my antique teacups. I have thoughts of them stacked, as well as lying down as though they have been tipped over. If they are tipped over I think I would like either tea or grounded tea leaves spilling out of the cup. I wish to zoom in on the tea cup, throwing certain points out of focus, emphasizing on the spilt tea. Most likely having the split teacups in the foreground, throwing other teacups in the background or just the background of out focus.
