Title: Fruit with Blue Silk Fabric

This painting is a still life arrangement featuring fruit (an orange, a lemon, red grapes, green grapes)and red wine. The tablecloth in the painting was originally an antique kimono belt, which is called "obi" in Japanese. I came across this obi at an antique store in Japan and the design of the pattern caught my eye.
I saw the pattern reflecting in the silver bowl, it was so beautiful. That's why I wanted to paint it.

This is a very beautiful piece of art. I love the reflective quality of the bowl and the soft effect on the fruit.

Thank you!
I'll try to paint still life more.
I really miss it.
