This painting is by Willem Van Alest. I picked this because I liked the colors and how the artist silhouetted the objects onto a dark background. The flowers almost look like they are drooping at the bottom. I also see a butterfly and I like how some of the flowers are not yet blooming. I also like the red and black lady bug and the little holes on the leaves which shows the bugs were eating them. The details in this picture are precise and beautiful.
