Cottage Garden Arrangement

If this painting were to be done over, the symetrical pears would be placed in a different way. Perhaps the pear on the left, could be horizontal, peeping out from behind the vase. It's relationship with the pink foxglove is too dominating - I see now in hindsight.
Oil on canvas 8" x 10"


  1. sei brava Alice...non ne sbagli uno!
    Non c'è nulla da dire, se non confermarti la mia ammirazione per le tue opere.
    Mi piace la limpidezza, l' armonia, la serenità che infondono.
    ciaoooo Carla
