This painting captures the beauty of blue and white ginger jars in different shapes and patterns. I enjoy painting their intricate patterns that are not only beautiful but also tells stories. I also like to play with colour contrast in my still life. By adding yellow colour of the lemons against the blue of the ginger jars into this composition, makes this painting looks more attractive and compelling. My concept is to create "beauty" for people to enjoy and appreciate without any interpretations.
