"The Camel Night Lamp"

Watercolor, Oil Pastel, Inktense. 19.5 X 27.5 inches.
 
This is a very lush, high key painting of lilies in a silver pitcher, a candle stick with a ripe, pear-shaped candle, and an exotic night lamp, with a slightly self-important golden camel resting under its fringed shade. The space is broken, although subtly, which encourages our eyes to look around the objects to see what else might be there. Available at http://catmartinez.etsy.com
