Glorious expressive mid century floral still life. This is a really striking painting with an exciting palette and energetic brushwork. A wonderful vibrant bunch of blue and pink flowers in a tall blue-grey glass vase set on a shiny black table with a white chair behind on a deep black background. The painting is enlivened by the verdant sharp green apples on the table. This is one of my all time favourite paintings!

WHAT I SELL
I only buy works that I like and would happily live with; most of what I sell is vintage and decorative and will therefore show some marks of time. For me that is part of the charm but please make sure you have examined the photos carefully and are fully aware of any imperfections!
I buy art for you to live with and love. Some will be by named artists but much of the art I sell is by unknown artists. where I do know who it's by I will tell you what I know.
I carry a few contemporary works but do not represent any artists.
I try to keep the original frames, firstly for environmental reasons and secondly, as people have such different ideas on framing. Some frames will therefore be a bit imperfect but if there is anything major I will always draw your attention to it. The price of the artwork you are buying is solely the picture itself: I include the frames as an extra at no charge. There are a huge number of wonderful framers around but if you need help I can always help you find someone.
