Oil on panel, 12x12 inches (30x30 cm), this small still life is dominated by the two pink roses and the elaborate patterns on both the small Chinese blue and white vase and the upper and lower floral-scroll patterns on the elegantly shaped, small teapot. The deep color and the massive size of the ginger jar, as well as its curving form, add balance to this work, and the warm deep golden orange of the background is, in turn, balanced by the cool blue of the lower portion of the painting. The lines of the vase, teapot with it's slender spout, and then of the ginger jar, carry the viewer's gaze around the painting and through the passage of warm and cool colors. Signed and dated in verso, this work ships with a digitally-registered Certificate of Authenticity. It is framed in a 3-inch wide mahogany plein air frame (wood) that complements the warm golden background, and brings the framed dimensions to 18x18 inches. (45x45 cm).
