Flowers at Night with Window Reflection



I found this lovely blue vase at the local Sunday market a few weeks back and knew immediately I could put it to use in a still-life painting of some kind.  Tried various floral arrangements with it and finally settled on this as I liked the colour combination and shapes against the dark reflection and brightly lit windowsill.  So now for my next painting...  Maybe another vase of flowers, or will it be the beautiful cherub sculpture given to me yesterday by a very kind lady I know... :)  I do enjoy painting at night.  It's a very quiet and relaxing time to paint.

Oil on 10" x 8" linen.
