Antique Chinese Vessel With Roses 16 x 12 Oil on Panel

I really enjoy painting this Antique Chinese Soy Sauce Vessel. As posted a few months ago I purchased this after years of looking for one. It was expensive, but well worth it. The blue and white jar is also an antique from a relative. It is a perfect size for many of my paintings. These roses came from the backyard. At the beginning of the season they were more pink and now they are more yellow, but every time they bloom they are a different color off of the same rose bush.

This morning reading a post from a fellow Atlanta artist on Facebook, I wanted to alert my friends. She went to a restaurant this weekend to find that an image of her painting had been stolen and printed I assume on canvas and was hanging in the restaurant. Apparently this has happened to another Atlanta artist. If I find out more information I will post it. What kind of person would do this?

Hey Christine!
Really beautiful contrasts and volume on the vessel!! Very moody painting too, and love these personal objects!

I have never heard of a rose bush changing colors, that is amazing!!

What terrible sad news about the stolen images too, that is so terrible!
