Created in September 2022, this painting features a beloved West German ceramic vase in a stunning jade colour. A treasured find from a local flea market several years prior, the vase has since been a cherished addition to my collection. What I find particularly captivating is the way the afternoon sun plays upon its surface, casting a mesmerising dance of light and shadow that accentuates the intricate pattern adorning the vase.

As you may have already guessed, roses hold a special place in my heart. Their unapologetic elegance, romanticism, and beauty are truly unmatched. In this piece, their resplendent charm takes centre stage, with the blossoms cascading gently over the lip of the vase. The contrast between the jade vase and the roses is further heightened by the striking backdrop of crimson alizarin red, causing the flowers to seemingly leap from the canvas.

With each brushstroke, I carefully imbued the roses with a sense of life and vitality, capturing the delicate folds of their velvety petals and the subtle gradations of colour that lend them their unmistakable allure. The interplay of light and shadow allows the roses to truly shine, their presence a testament to the enduring appeal of these classic symbols of love and beauty.

The overall composition, from the vibrant colours to the evocative subject matter, is designed to transport the viewer into a world of romance and nostalgia, where the passage of time seems to slow and the simple pleasures in life take on a heightened significance. Through the depiction of the jade vase and the resplendent roses, this painting serves as a celebration of the beauty that can be found in the everyday, reminding us to pause and appreciate the small moments of joy that life has to offer.

In the end, this work of art is not only a tribute to the timeless appeal of roses and the enchanting quality of the jade vase but also an invitation to embrace the world around us with open hearts, allowing the magic of simple treasures to enrich our lives and fill our souls with a sense of wonder and delight.
