Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

This is one of a series of oil on linen floral still lifes untaken in the fall of 2014, each on a 12x12 canvas and comprised of various flowers in differing vases or teapots. This one depicts a bouquet of peonies from my garden, arranged in the late afternoon of a June day, and paired with a small painted tea caddy that I've always cherished because it was my mother's. I enjoyed painting the roses as much as I enjoyed painting the peonies, no more real in the pitcher than those on the tea caddy. I like the contrast of the light blue pitcher and the pale green container against the dark maroon cloth, a shade echoed in the deeper magentas of the darker peonies and in one of the painted roses. The round shapes of vessels and blossoms make for a pleasing circular pattern highlighted against the deep shadows of the late afternoon light in which I photographed this scene. Signed and dated in verso, this work ships with a digitally-registered Certificate of Authenticity. It is framed in a 3-inch wide gold plein air frame (wood) and clear-coated with archival artists varnish for protection against dust and abrasion.
