Artwork Description

Oil on wood, ready to hang.

Signed on the back.

This artwork comes with an external frame

My work has been highly influenced by the world of commercial art and graphic design. This translates to my art in many ways. My still life paintings are careful composition full of allegories, which capture a moment in time where all represented items are meaningful beyond the composition.

"Buttercup Teacup" is one in a series of still life paintings that feature a piece of origami, and other everyday objects. In this painting a small white blossom sits by a tea cup alongside a paper crane. The flower represents natural beauty, and the paper crane represents wisdom and creativity through experience.

Oil on canvas, framed in Tasmanian oak.

A small realistic painting of a tea cup set. The small tea cup is sitting on two levels of tea plates. The tea set is decorated with ornate pink roses. Inside the tea cup is brown colored tea with a teabag infusing in the liquid. The string from the teabag connects to a pink origami butterfly, leaning against the teacup and plates. The background shows shadows made from two light sources hitting the tea cup set, a neutral mix of blues, pinks, yellows and whites. (CreativeWork) Silver Jug and the Roses by Melissa Ritchie. Oil.
