I took a picture of a vase with lilacs in 2003. It reminded me so much of a similar subject Manet painted that I had to give it a shot. . .
I always loved this painting by Helene Schjerfbeck. She was a Finnish painted who died in 1946 – at the age of 83. She produced lots of wonderful works, especially portraits. I first painted a watercolor, and more recently an oil painting. .
