Still Life Week, Golden Ratio

I just saw a great animation called Nature by Numbers, by Cristobal Vila posted on the illustration blog Lines and Colors and I decided that I would post this painting next. The animation, and this painting are about the golden ratio, a mathematical relationship that is highly significant to nature and growth, and subsequently to human perception of beauty and harmony.
