There were a lot of candidates for this challenge. I had planned to make soups this weekend to freeze in smal containers to take for lunches. It is a job that I find very soothing. But there has been alot of food posted on this blog and I wanted to do something different. So I chose these products which are very soothing to someone who lives in a winter country. The Jergens lotion soothes parched, itchy skin and it's lovely cherry almond scent soothes the soul. The Blistex lip balm soothes cracked, chapped lips. The little blue bottle is lavender essential oil which I use to ward off the constant colds and flus that surround those of us who work in a public institution. It's also relaxing and soothing. I could also have added a CD called "the most relaxing classical album in the world...ever!" Cheesy title, but fabulous music, although I couldn't quite fit it on the page. There were also two little round lozenges for soothing sore, dry throats but (of course) the tabby cat knocked them off the table and so far under the stove that they were irretrievable. She seems to think that drawing and painting is a team sport, and all still life setups are simply cat toys waiting to be discovered. And that was not so soothing.
After previewing this, I see that the shading on the lotion bottle did not show up on the scan. Too bad, as I worked hard on getting the subtles shadows.
