"Flowers in a Copper Vase"

by Anna Marie Aguiar

Anna Marie Aguiar is a Physical Therapist Assistant at the Santa Clara Medical Center in Northern California. This watercolor was inspired by the simplicity of calla lilies. She contrasted their soft beauty with the hard, shiny surface of the copper vase. She enjoys painting flowers because they transcend everyday life.
