Detail - Blue Table and Vase

It can sometimes be surprising when a situation or object can potentially present the seed for a painting to grow into it’s full composition. This red terracotta vase is most likely from Oaxaca, Mexico. We found it at a Value Village store! It took a while before I envisioned the vase’s supporting elements to fill out the theme. The heart shaped container is a wonderful piece my wife crafted. I hoped for a specific colour harmony and as well sometimes comes along as the painting stages develop. The scene has an intended ‘placed’ feeling which I believe supports the symbolism I was after.
