Pansies in Copper Pot

Pansies in Copper Pot
12x12 Oil on Canvas
Cheri Wollenberg
Pansies are so hearty.  Hearty flowers are for folks like me.  One of my goals in life is to become a great gardener.  I plan to spend some time raising these favorite flowers one day and have gorgeous flower beds.....goals or dreams, maybe a little of each.  I have grown pansies though, and they stayed beautiful for months at a time.  Since they can endure a lot of cool weather they seem to relish in the spots that I have placed them in the past.  This still life includes one of my favorite copper items, a blue pottery vase that was given to me by a sweet little friend in art school, a white rice bowl and pansies of whites and purples that I had in a large garden pot this fall.

Cheri, once again you have posted a painting that I need to take time to simply study. The color variation on the copper pot, the shading inside the ellipse of the bowl, the white accents where the light kisses, the soft edges where the vase melts into the background...
A beautiful painting and a lesson all at once.
