In my home, I have a cherished collection of vintage fabrics, each piece brimming with history and character. As I prepared to create this still life, I was inspired to incorporate one of these textiles into the composition. Draping a sumptuous piece of velvet, reminiscent of an elegant curtain, I arranged the scene with the vibrant roses taking center stage in a bold red vase – a treasured find from my flea market adventures.

This painting was created in December 2020, a time when the world felt unfamiliar and uncertain, with the festive season just around the corner. Despite the challenges, I was determined to capture a sense of warmth and hope in my art.

To bring this vision to life, I employed the impasto technique, applying thick layers of paint and expressive brushstrokes to create a rich, textured surface. The result is a dynamic and captivating piece that showcases the striking contrast between the lush velvet backdrop and the vivid hue of the red vase.

As I painted, I found solace in the creative process, allowing myself to be fully immersed in the beauty of the moment. The combination of the vintage fabric, the radiant roses, and the bold red vase served as a reminder that, even during the most trying times, there is still an abundance of beauty and joy to be found.

Now, as I look back on this painting, it stands as a testament to the resilience of the human spirit and our ability to find solace in the simple pleasures that life has to offer. Through the power of art, we can not only express our emotions but also capture the small, everyday moments that bring us happiness and hope, no matter the circumstances.
