Freshly Cut Pink Hydrangeas 5x7 in. little gems

Freshly Cut Pink Hydrangeas
5x7 inches / oil
There’s no mistaking that my main interest in this subject was the leaves, hence the unique orientation of the hydrangeas in this painting. Those leaves felt tender yet crisp at the base of their stalks . . . and the cool, smooth new growth borne from those wonderful woody stems, cut roughly, revealing the life within.

Oh, thank you SO much, Suz! I've been posting some older work lately which has been fun to see again, but I am working on some new florals that I hope will be dazzling! :o) Always a delight hearing from you!
