CHERUB VASE  15"x 18" oil on canvas  $1,200

Flowers are capable of neither emotion or volition, but are simply natures gift, there to be enjoyed in their fleeting moment. This elegantly arranged bouquet of flowers, none more prominent than the rest, provides a diverse and colorful display of one of nature's purest delights, preserved here for a lasting impression. The playful cherub, left here for eternity to adorn the sculpted vase, creates an amusing portrait of eternal youth. Also significant, equally a part of the life cycle, are the falling petals that show the impermanence of these blooms. The bright azure butterfly, a subtle part of the lovely display, also demonstrates the metamorphosis of life, resting for a moment to lend its color, able to fly off at any instant, the single part of this composition that has mobility. The richness is achieved through many layers of paint, lights built upon darks, the dark background defining the bright and colorful flowers.
