This is Rosie, an African Grey parrot. She belongs to a friend. I have been studying still life from an art history perspective in the last few months and I had an image in mind that I wanted to capture. I had seen a picture called "Still Life with Parrot" by William Merritt Chase in one of my books. I was somewhat smitten with the image and I wanted to replicate it in a contemporary way. As I prepared my equipment and props for the shoot I remembered an old fan in the garage. I thought it would add a bit of nostalgia to the image. I feel the picture is successful and the fan definitely helped. The teapot on the left side of the picture is the work of a ceramics master and friend Tom Meuninck. Tom lives and works in the northern Indiana town of North Liberty which is near Elkhart. The teacups are Japanese as is the vase. I stopped and picked some wild flowers on my way to the shoot. I hope you enjoy this as much as I have in the conceptualizing, planning and execution phases. Thanks also to Rosie and her peeps.
Please feel free to share the picture on this page and any of my other photos with friends, family and associates.
