Still Life with Mandarines and Pumpkin


Still life oil painting of a small yellow pumpkin, two mandarines, a spoon, a small copper pot, a pear, a blue castor oil bottle and a carafe.

Still life oil painting of a copper pot, a knife, two onions, a small copper jug, a pepper grinder and an antique bottle.
