Another Fractured Images Still Life

Dressy Callas, 22x15 watercolor
Here's another one in the same trend as the previous image ignoring perspective. Each of us in the Caboose Watercolor Society were tasked to create a composition using only 4 objects we'd selected prior and we had 6 months to 1 year to get our works done. (We had done a 4 Objects Still Life show several times). In this endeavor we had one fake calla lily, an Indian southwest blanket, a fake pear, and a coral colored miniature dress form jewelry holder. Good grief! I said when the items were delivered to me, how can anyone make an interesting design out of these incongruous, mundane, and uninteresting things? Well, here is my interpretation anyway, drawn, fractured, and painted in a broken shape relationship where all parts should make a whole.

You are very good with this. The elements surely do combine to create a whole. Beautiful!
