    Lemay and her painter husband live “a life in art,” and these essays reflect on that life and how still lifes offer ways to let thrills of beauty shine through ordinary days and objects. Lemay discusses the craft of writing, the art of photography, and the give-and-take of marriage in clear and lyrical prose.
