Holding More Than Flowers-Vase

Close ups

Oil on 7x5 hardboard.

This is my contribution to the Gift Challenge II at DPW posted by the extraordinary artist, Abbey Ryan .
Abbey suggested to paint something that you feel connected to or has meaning for you because someone gave it to you.
This is a simple little vase with Greek (I think) figures. My Mother loved the little vase, and now I love the many recollections it holds.

Available ... If interested, contact me at kkayangel2(at)yahoo.com

1 Corinthians 4:5 Therefore judge nothing before the appointed time; wait until the Lord comes. He will bring to light what is hidden in darkness and will expose the motives of the heart. At that time each will receive their praise from God.


  1. The vase looks like a Wedgewood piece to me, Dean. I recently saw some early or period Wedgewood pieces (which I thought were usually soft blue and white) that were green and white like this beauty. Stunning! Nothing prettier than red roses in this vase too.

  2. Hey there Dean!... As always ... the title is as thoughtful and well thought out as the composition of your subject.

    Even the half lighting contributes to the nostalgia of your thoughts and the moment. What a better gift for a great Mom... than a beautiful bouquet of roses!

    Well "said" Dean!

    Good Painting!
    Warmest regards,

  3. Another winner, Dean! Wonderful light hitting the vase and the beautiful flowers and it's even more special since your Mother loved this vase.!!

  4. Very nicely painted and a beautiful way to remember your Mom. Love the title

  5. it is fun to see a painting of something that belonged to your Mom! Well done...she would be proud
