Jan's Blue Vase
Oil on Wood
So here is how things work on the island. We invite Jan, who is a master gardener, to join us for dinner. She brings two bags of home grown lettuce for a delicious salad and a red, pink, and purple flower bouquet in a blue vase, whose handle is broken off. The vase was headed for the rocks on the beach to some day come back to us as sea glass. But for now, it is the perfect vessel for Jan's flowers which along with the left over lettuce are reminders of the great evening we shared earlier in the week. When the flowers are finished blooming I will get to break the vase on the rocks and if I'm lucky, will be the one to harvest the sea glass some day down the road when it is ready.
