House Music - Poems by Ellen Kaufman

Never having written a villanelle I liked, I wanted to send my congratulations to Ellen Kaufman on "A Flemish Still Life," and to say I am also ordering her House Music.  As an admirer of Northern Still Life, I wonder which painting (if any particular painting) was her subject.  I think of Heda or Kalf, but they are (strictly speaking) Dutch.  In any case, thank you for the accomplished poem.

Jeredith--Sorry I missed your comment until now. I didn't have one actual painting in mind, but that sort of baroque, over-the-top still life from the 17th century, and you're right--many of them are Dutch.
Thanks so much for your kind response.
