Pansies and Saucer again {a new small floral painting}

Still Life with Pansies and Saucer

{8" x 6" (20.3 x 15.2 cm)) – oil on linen panel}

Sometimes I get the opportunity to revisit a previous composition for a collector. Today's painting was such an opportunity. I liken the experience to visiting with a friend, someone you like and know, and on this particular visit you get to learn something new, deeper, something that helps you admire and value the friend more than ever before.

The revisiting becomes an opportunity to ponder and absorb nuances that previously were overlooked, adding value and color to my life. While working on this painting I was struck with the sense of depth and the visual affect of the lighter areas of the saucer shining through the brown bottle, something I would not have been aware to look for if I had not returned to this composition.

I had such a great time creating this artwork for a special couple. Do you have a composition or image in mind that you would like me to re-capture for you in a painting? I would be happy to interpret it for you.

Indeed, you paint these so naturally~
love the bottle and the pansies and that saucer in the background too. How fun to think of things that might be special to someone and then to paint it in your style.
