posies in glass jar – oil painting

sunlit posies

A joyful little painting – I’m happy with the way the contrast between light and dark really makes the flowers pop!

Here is Tom’s poem. He says he sees this painting as a metaphor for some beautiful, elegant woman basking on a yacht! 🙂

Overflowing blossom
scarf tied ’round round throat
basking in the sunshine
living life afloat!

  1. 10 years ago I was impressed by your ability to paint how the light behaves in and around a glass jar. This one takes it to a new level. The glass, the stems and the petals all feel real.
