About This Painting

I hate to disappoint you if you have become accustomed to the "story behind the painting" and discovering what lurks behind the scenes, but this is all that you see.

A still life with a silver teapot.

I am particularly pleased with the sense of light and shadow in it. The rich, deep red of the background sort of disappears into the shadows, and the window highlight reflection on the maroon vase can almost hurt your eyes. Careful.

The painting is all that remains of this quiet and peaceful setting. It has all been taken down, but I can assure you it was a delight to drink my coffee sitting before this still life with a silver teapot.

Very nice David; I had to read the dimensions twice; when I first saw the painting, I assumed it was a bigger piece.

Impressive use of small space - I'm with previous response, it reads as a bigger painting! Love the successful treatment of various materials - excellent piece!
