some old paintings

Back in 2004 I did a group of small oil paintings on canvas (mostly around 8x10") of objects from around my home - little things that I have collected through my life that are significant or appealing to me in some way. I was (and still am) really interested in the meaning of objects; the significance of things that have memories associated with them, or become meaningful to us for reasons beyond our immediate understanding. Other than a few random exercises, this was really the last body of work I did before I started the mineral specimens this summer. (*the images are kind of tiny - I'll have to look for better quality images to replace these at some point)
