I enjoyed arranging and photographing these three items from my collection of still-life props: the pitcher with its lacy and curving top edge, the teapot (which is actually quite heavy), and the simple, but shapely green cup. I made the water pitcher an ivory shade, used brilliant (slightly bluish) white for the teapot, and painted the green as emerald as I could manage. The graduated neutral grey background, and the pink tabletop (giving me the opportunity to catch some pink in the reflections on the porcelain), help unify the dominant whites. Framed in a black plein air frame (wood), this is quite a dramatic painting. Oil on panel, 12x12 inches (30x30 cm), the frame adds 2.5 inches on all sides for an overall dimension of 17x17x1 in (43x43 cm). Clear-coated with archival artists varnish for protection against dust and abrasion, this work is signed and dated on in verso, this work ships with a digitally-registered Certificate of Authenticity.
