'Irises in Jug'

Commission, Framed original
16" x 12" including frame


Commissioned by a loving daughter for her Danish mother's birthday, this still life is of deep blue irises and gypsophila in a Royal Copenhagen jug.  The jug was quite a challenge as the white had to be waxed, leaving gaps between to create the intricate blue pattern.  I used the Batik crackle in the background, picking up the paler blue in the pattern, to give a lively but delicate effect.
