"Rose" 6x6

Oil on Hardboard 6"x6"

This little antique Chinese porcelain brush washer (plus two others) has been sitting around in my studio for a long time, but has never been used in any of my painting. It was about time for it to make an appearance. I like the idea of the pot sitting just inside the shadow. Maybe a grouping of all three would make a nice composition.

This painting is wonderful, I love the transparency of the petals, the light/shadow play, the vase, and the spilled water. Great piece!
Best regards,

The ring mark is a stroke of genius! A small detail that adds so much to the painting and takes it from great to exceptional. Inspired!

I love the drama of light that you incorporate into your compositions - absolutely wonderful.

Great idea and I like the way it seems like the pot has just been moved out of the light, leaving that wet ring.
Sort of two moments in time in one painting :-)
Beautifully painted as always ........ are you fed up with me saying that yet ;-)
