Japanese sake jar and plums

Here’s the latest still life painting, framed and photographed today. Funny anecdote: I must have painted it well; a swarm of small flies attacked the plums and got stuck in the last stand oil glaze. I had a hell of a job to carefully remove the little buggers. 

Japanese sake jar with plums

“Japanese sake jar with plums”   Oil/Canvas   73/100 cm. (28,7/39,4 in.)

Thanks to my Dutch art dealer René De Vreugd and his most benevolent clients Antonia and Peter, I finally discovered the meaning of the calligraphy on the jar. The symbols refer to the appellation of origin, something about a specific wine-grower in a wooded area.
