Artist's description:

This still life is part of a series I have been working on recently. They are all painted from life and staged in a shadowbox I have set up in my studio space. These smaller paintings allow me to experiment with different light and other effects, such as the transparency of glass for example.

Here I "re-cycled" a souvenir from Florence - an empty bottle of the lovely home scent "Boboli" from Dr. Vranjes. I felt the elegance of the almost white roses and the muted background went rather well with the beautiful, yet simple, bottle.

I have found a lovely Italian frame for this artwork. The frame is a brownish black with an ornate gilded insert. The frame is 34,5cm wide, 44,5cm high and roughly 4cm deep. It has been carefully patinated by the frame maker to make it look a bit "pre-loved", so tiny scratches and little irregularities are meant to be.
The painting itself measures 35cm x 25cm.
