Flemish style oil painting on small wooden support, lemon slice on a porcelain cup with flowers, snail shell and wasp :

painted in oil on egg tempera undersides, this small still life brings together in a compact composition a cup, a lemon wedge, a lemon blossom branch, a wasp and an empty snail shell. The lemon rind echoes the spiral pattern of the snail shell and initiates the diagonal upward movement that ends with a lemon blossom bud at the top right of the picture area. Endowed with a solid composition, this still life remains powerful and simple despite its small size...

• Technique: gesso coated wood board, monochrome egg tempera underpaintings and multiple layers of thin colored oil glazings ( flemish technique ). The sides are gilded with copper leaf ( patinated aspect ).

• Dimensions : 3.54 x 2.16 x 0.31 in / 9 x 5.5 x 0.8 cm

• Shipping and delivery : registered parcel with signature on delivery. Robust packaging: your painting is wrapped in silk paper, bubble wrap and a inflexible cardboard sleeve.
This small format oil painting is an unique artwork, hand painted and signed.

As an artist myself, I immediately saw the quality in these miniatures. I was delighted to receive the parcel. Every possible detail and then some was observed in the packaging. Clearly, this artist is schooled in precision and quality every step of the way. I have placed my little painting among other valuables in a beloved curio cabinet. I love collecting things that have been imbued with soul.
