Oil on wood 20x20cms
I realised that I hadn't posted for a little while, but I have been painting... this is a terracotta vase filled with a purple plant called 'miseria'. It's from the garden of a 17th century villa but I'm sure the vase isn't that old. I was attracted to the shadows of the plant falling on the terracotta in the sun.
Here's the garden, my vase is near the house on the right of the pretty garden.
