Oil Painting of Lilies, Satin Cloth, Grapes and Rose, 12" x 17", Oil on Canvas Panel


With Easter, Spring, and Passover just around the corner, I felt a painting that encompassed the symbolism of this season was called for. The whole season of spring and it's holidays makes me think of rebirth, freedom and celebration of life.

There's a few symbols in this painting. Some obvious, some not. See if you can find a couple. I used some cool colors in this painting to offset the beautiful green leaves and red tones in the fruit and flower at the base. Even the color of the cloth was chosen carefully. It has meaning too.
