Subjects for still life painting

My painting space is full of bits and pieces to paint. Interesting textures, colours, ephemera, memorabilia and things found whilst out for walks. I’ve been doing it for years and a lot of the items were kept in ‘the treasure box’. This is the lid of the treasure box with a few of the collected items. The box used to be the cash box, or till, in The Masons Arms pub in Ackworth, Yorkshire. My Dad was the landlord there in the 1980’s and the box dates from the 1930’s I think.
