Stretched and framed.

Still life of vase, bowl, fruits and vegetables with landscape background. Tan hued vase with blue hued dragon design appears behind an irregularly shaped green and gray hued bowl holding a bell pepper and an open red pomegrante sitting on a blue cloth lying on a purple hued rectangular form; two brown chestnuts appear at base of bowl, center foreground, next to an orange persimmon, lower right corner. In background, a tree rises from brown earth in front of blue bushes along upper left; mountains in hues of green, blue, red and brown recede into the distance, shrouded in white and pink clouds; a path appears over mountaintops.
