Now with a background

I decided to add a background that would purposely feel out-of-focus, so that one’s eye would be drawn inward, towards the focal point of the vase.  It’s debatable whether the painting would have been better off without the background.  I think it creates a different mood, though I wonder if a dark blue somewhere could have provided more of a value contrast.Still Life with Wine Bottle and Vases_3
