This still life set-up seemed to fit perfectly in a square format so I chose a 12" x 12" canvas. I like the simple shapes and strong colors of this Valentine painting. The pewter plate was made by my mother when she was a girl. Ten years ago, she asked an appraiser to give a value to her household belongings for insurance reasons. When he picked up the pewter plate, she kept quiet as he inspected it carefully. "Most likely 17th century," he announced. She enjoyed her little secret. For me, it was fun to incorporate her art in mine...and the pewter plate was the perfect backdrop for the orange flowers.
