Stolen Flower

Stolen Flower

This is my first full fledged painting.  It is of a still-life utilizing a limited pallet.  Unfortunately someone liked it so much they stole it out of the classroom.  Fortunately I had a poor photo of the painting that I attempted here to stretch and light correct to resemble the original as much as possible.  Please contact me if you know anyone with this original, I would very much like to have it back, it was to be a gift to a family member.
