Still Life paintings can be very simple, a vase and a few flowers would be quite adequate. It stands to reason that the more elements that are introduced, the more complicated it becomes, either way the painting must have good balance.
This one took a lot of planning and the going was tough, because there are so many elements involved. Stressful paintings can either make you want to jump for joy, or alternatively, throw your brushes away.
P. S. I still have the brushes.
