This still life depicts a vase of flowers in vivid detail. The vase, which holds a variety of flowers and greenery, seems to disappear amidst many petals and leaves that extend to every edge of the canvas. The pastel colours of the flowers are highlighted nicely by the inclusion of a light source at the right of the painting. This helps to create an illusion that the vase is grounded and sitting on a flat surface, rather than simply floating in space.
