Dianthus Vincifera

Oil on canvas

Bought these carnations from my regula florist, who is never very excited to see me. I took up a good amount of his time mixing and matching and begging him to give me extra flowers, only to buy a small bunch.
Once I set up the ensemble, my maid suggested that I put the wine bottle alongside, which was in the grocery I had brought in from the same shopping trip as the flowers. So here it is, wine and flowers. What more can a woman want.
A photo of the model for reference!
