Hydrangeas in the Morning ~ Weekly Challenge Painting

5" x 7" Oil on Canvas Panel
Available for Purchase
$25.00, plus Shipping

This week was called our "Zen" project when we were asked to paint this sunlit still life arrangement of Hydrangeas and a Buddha. I loved painting this one. I am of fan of still life painting and I love hydrangeas. I have several hydrangea bushes of pink and blue versions in my backyard. I am thinking of painting a larger version of the painting for my own!

There are so many things I want to paint! Coming up next~~I am going to paint a small Christmas painting on a canvas panel. I bought lemons for a lemon pie for Thanksgiving. Miranda helped me set up still life compositions using the fresh lemons before I made the pie. I will be working with those reference photos to paint new lemon still life paintings.

I have also been asked to paint nekked ladies....well, maybe....we'll see....

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the newest painting. Check back again soon. There is definitely more to come!

Torrie, I really like your painting. The limited palette is perfect for this subject - very tranquil. Nicely done!
