Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

This painting began when I found the Royal crown rose and ivory teacup that in the center of this 20x16 in oil painting. The red roses seemed like the perfect complement to the teacup, the fan of the bouquet echoing the shape of the cup, as well as the fan-shape of the blue glass vase. I wanted to anchor both the right and left side of the cup/vase/roses composition in the center, and also bring in some interesting secondary colors: the violet of the small milk pitcher and the light turquoise of the teapot. This work is signed and dated in verso, clear-coated in artist-grade varnish to protect from dust and abrasion, and ships with a digitally-registered Certificate of Authenticity. It is framed in a 3-inch wide (on all side) gold-leaf plain air frame that is at once complimentary and captivating. The gold of the frame is echoed in the gold that's in both the rim of the teacup and of the pitcher.
