The strangest thing I ever put in still life was raw chicken. This was a paint raw meat challenge. I should have chosen beef but the whole thing made me queasy. The point is anything can be a still life. It is all shape, value and pattern. It is fun to set up your own world and these china dogs were happy to play with the big shiny "ball".
