I bought these flowers and stuck them in a shapely, hand-painted Italian pitcher, but as I was painting them, the handle shape, the pattern on the pitcher and pitcher curves seemed to take on a life of their own and simply overwhelmed what I was trying to do with the flowers.   So the "vase" is really a representation of the light below the arrangement and put there to support the painting's focus.

   The bright blue in the background is the jacket I was wearning and hung on a chair behind the flowers.  I liked the color there so it became part of the background.
