Pinnochio’s Apple

I recently purchased this wooden modelling arm, I think it is aimed at people who paint or draw still life, but I decided to use it to create still life. I really wanted to create a series, of this hand holding everyday objects, like this apple. It is a piece of light painting, but it is also something more…

When I had the finished image, the hand reminded me of Pinnochio, the little wooden puppet who wanted to be a real boy. I am not entirely sure WHERE this series will end up, but I see potential, something that I can come back to again and again.
