I've been working on this firecrackers still-life stuff. I've wanted to show them smoking and such, so I've been fooling around with smoke. The smoke stuff has started to take on a life of its own. Most of my stuff lately has been so controlled, contrived, which I still like. I don't have much control over the smoke, though, so it's a lot more discovery, happy-accident kinda stuff. It's nice.
And in line with relinquishing control: no sixth of six Death Valley posts!
