White Vase on Damask

Another still life here, I don't think I've posted this one before.
It's a bit more of a traditional still life than the chairs and the cottage interiors, but I think it shows the same restraint in tone and colour.
I did a few of these pictures with damask, but there is just so much work involved that I doubt if I'll do a lot more of them.

I really love this. I like the simplicity, and the shine and pattern in the fabric are lovely details.

But mostly I like it as a bit of a puzzle: because of the shape, it's hard to tell at first if that's some huge decorative urn, or a tiny chess piece--and so I linger over it a while, wondering.

Thanks for sharing these; I'm enjoying them.

Thanks Susan
I never thought of it like that.
It's actually a little wooden bottle about eight inches high. A Russian friend gave it to me years ago and I painted it white.
Glad you are enjoying these pictures. I'll dig out a few more.
