Your comments are always wonderful,:iconjoyplz: I try to make my still life's a story and everyone can read it differently.

Addiction,
Memories,
Icons of the past,

I was told by a 90 year old that he had his slippers, pipe and nip of Port delivered to him by his wife. That was the norm. Smoking was very acceptable and having a devoted wife who did everything for her man was the expected. The husband was king.

How times have changed.

I really like how you've defined the creases of the materials and composed the objects for this piece too.

The colours work together well, and I get the feeling that... it's afternoon/night time... just before the guy goes to bed, perhaps.

This is quite an interesting piece... thought-provoking, I reckon. ^^;

I want to make a lewd joke about what other vice is missing from this male still life, lol. I remember the smell of my dad's pipe tobacco. No one smokes a pipe anymore...

Love:love: the comment, I am :pleased: that you can smell your grandfather's pipe, I feel that paintings should transport us and your comment has achieved that, thanks.:iconthankyouplz1:

Send me the lewd joke thru notes, I would love to read it. I am pretty broad minded, not much shocks me. Interesting to see what this painting can evoke.
