Save the Hydrangeas

Standard

For Sale at Trimble Court Artisans (26x26in on Stretched Canvas)

Baby girl was sick today but I just had to paint.  We stocked up on repurposed canvases and vases last night at Goodwill and I was anxious to use them.  Unfortunately, the bouquet I picked up and arranged wasn’t inspiring when I got it home.  I was about to walk across the street and cut some of the neighbor’s hydrangeas (gasp!) then noticed this dark purple bush at the end of our sidewalk and snapped a photo.  Alas, during 2 shorter naps today I was able to complete this beauty.  I over-emphasized the colors a bit, isn’t that what being an artist is all about?

Praise Jesus for a good painting session amidst a crabby baby and interrupted swimming plans.  Now I just wish I could praise him even when I don’t paint well.  I’m always learning.

Here are a couple progression photos-
