Floral Oil of White Flowers in a Silver Cup with Grapes, 11" x 14"

"The Real Thing"

This is 11" x 14" painting of a silver bowl with white flowers and grapes. That said for Ebay and Google searches, the composition is a bit more involved than ones I have done recently. I jumped into this one with both feet because I have been away from the easel for a few days and I wanted to tackle something a bit complex. The cloth is a gold tapestry and it, along with the grapes are reflected in the silver bowl. The green glass jar balances nicely with the Japanese vase in the background. The title was inspired by the likeness of the real flower to the decoration painted on the Asian vase. There's a lot of rich paint on both the cloth and flowers. Enjoy!
