Vanitas

This photo is not the best (the dark blotches on the canvas are wet paint spots; it will take months to dry before I can varnish it) but I wanted to show the finished painting:


Vanitas I,2008. Oil on board


Vanitas is a type of still life painting showing objects that are meant to remind the viewer of the impermanence of life. "Vanitas" is a Latin term meaning "emptiness" and loosely translated corresponds to the meaninglessness of earthly life and the transient nature of vanity. It refers to the arts, learning and time.
