Still Life Painting of Green Bowl with Pomegranites

Painted in the studio of a friends house where I had access to lots of beautiful and interesting objects to paint. I think everything represented had been picked up in local brocante markets like the big Sunday market at L'Isle-sur-le-Sorgue, or local 'vide grenier' ie. garage sales. I was particularly drawn to the green glazes of the jug and bowl and set them off against the red patterned cloth and the pomegranites. The bird background is part of an old oriental style screen, and the hat is a firemans cap.
