A Basket Of Peaches Oil on canvas 12 x 16  ins

An oil painting of a basket of peaches with a glass of peach brandy, and a French Laguile knife on a stone slab set within a dark background. Often the truth is hidden in the shadows, hence the dark background. Peaches are symbolic of the silence of virtue and of a virtuous heart and language. A peach can also symbolize truth. As well as it’s aesthetic quality, there is more going on in this still life than one at first realizes.
