watercolor 12x9 inches

I finished this painting this week.  I'd started it in late summer, just painting the flowers and drew in the vases and bottle.  This is the way I do most of my larger still life paintings with flowers.  Sometimes I've just plopped flowers into a jar and painted them and weeks or months later decided what I would put around them.  The design in the background is done with gouache (opaque watercolor).
