Patience - original oil painting of snowdrops in an antique inkwell

This is an original oil painting of snowdrops in an antique inkwell with water.

I love seeing snowdrops in the spring, bringing the first signs of hope and life for the new growing season. 

By using a dark background and strong light and dark, I wanted to give them a sense of drama - as though they are characters on a stage.

It is signed using an archival pen in the bottom right. The painting comes in a classic chunky frame that will suit most interiors and is ready to hang.

The image size is 23.5cm x 20.4cm (10" x 8") and is in a chunky frame that measures 38.5cm x 33.5cm.

It is painted in oil on a board prepared with two finely sanded layers of gesso.
