This chipped and cracked Spode Blue Italian bowl sets the stage for a luscious painting, rich with glistening cherries, blushing bruised pears and a cascade of ripening red grapes set against a torn, antique floral tapestry. You can see that the inspiration for this was from an older painting of mine entitled "American Goldfinches" which is shown in the following post.
