Artwork to inspire poetry: Table with a book and a candle

Table with book and candle

This artwork is of a table with a book and a candle.  It has five objects in it: the wall (grayish blue), the floor (purple), the table (orange), the book (green) and the candle (blue with a red and yellow flame).

The artwork was done in a way as to have a certain style.  It is not detailed, the colors generally cover large areas of the scene and the shapes are simple.  There is also some white and gradations of color.  Additionally, the book and the candle and flame were done over the colors of the wall and table.  Also, the colors of the table and floor were chosen so as to be somewhat less than usual.

The idea behind the artwork is simple and subdued and it is meant to inspire poetry that is like that.
