Hyacinth Jar still life painting

Hyacinth Jar, 15 x 13 inches.  SOLD
I painted this piece in the darkest days of winter, but it seems I was thinking of Spring.  Although it must have been a subconscious association, because I chose to paint this subject for reasons unrelated to its Spring-y-ness.  This one came right after my three big stained glass paintings, and I just needed a change.  It wasn't about the flowers, it was about the alternating dark and light of the composition, and most especially about the soft edges in the glass.  I don't usually paint glass with soft edges, so painting this was a treat.
