Still Life painting of colored glass and roses by Melody Phaneuf

Rhythms & Roses

24 x 17 Oil Painting

The warmth of peach roses contrasts with cool mint green glass and blue cornflowers in the porcelain dish in this still life painting. I was drawn to the delicate nuances of color and by the rhythmic movement of light across the carved mantle.  In the Rhythms paintings, I wanted to provide a bit of architectural detail that would add charm to spaces where it is absent.
