Original Oil Painting Vintage Vase of Pansies

Vintage Vase of Pansies


12" x 12"
Painted on gesso panel.

I painted this from a photo I took outside. (Sunlight gives such a wonderful light.) Then I decided to paint the background out with the darker color. This makes a huge contrast for the natural sunlight. The vase was another goodwill find, love the retro-look. The berries and branch were added to give it a very delicate feel. Also notice the stripes, flowers and dots your mother always told you never to wear together or you will look like a clown. Well I used all of them on this painting!
