A still life painting usually looks boring and unoriginal. But, not this one. This steel ball painting is quite a surprise. The eccentric mixture of the main elements in the portrait really stand out from the other still lifes. Who would have thought that adding random sea shells actually work? But, it sure did! The outcome looks clean and contemporary. Definitely a must-have in a room made for the modern times. The best part about it is that it did not fall short when it comes to details. You can even see a reflection of a man in the steel ball and even the threads of the hanging rope is very life-like. This portrait may seem odd in first glance, but the more you stare it, the more you know it's a treasure.
