Oil on wood, ready to hang.
Signed on the front.
I am inspired by the inherent beauty of objects and flowers. I particularly like to include object that belonged to my mother in my still life works, and in this case it is the beautiful slender lime green glass vase. The other glass objects were chosen for their colours and shapes to create an interesting composition that I have dramatised with dramatic lighting. As I work from life, I sometime use dried flowers, in this case a protea, so that they remain the same throughout the painting process. The title refers to the meaning assigned to the protea flowers - courage, and also the need for resilience during recent difficult times. As my mother died when I was quite young, I have also felt I need to live with courage and resilience without her guidance.
