Still Life Paintings, Prints, Posters

SWEET SCENTS TO SAVOR

This still life watercolor painting depicts an inviting sunny window after a rainfall. Feminine ribbons and lace tablecloth enhance the theme of preservation suggested by the dried flowers, pot pourri in mason canning jars and home-made scented oil. Lingering droplets of water on the window panes assemble and trickle down, gathering momentum as more droplets join the stream. Upon reflection, this is not at all a "still" life.
