Fleurs dans Blue - Hydrangeas

Fleurs dans Blue by Nancy Medina
Oil on Linen Board

Fleurs dans Blue is my newest hydrangea painting, and is based on a beautiful pot of blue flowers from my container garden last summer. Someday I hope to become a master hydrangea gardener, someone who plays with additives and changes the colors of the blossoms and grows them in profusion all summer long. For now, I will be satisfied with painting them, and adding more blossoms where petals have fallen, fattening up leaves with my paintbrush when they are thinning, and laying in colors that may never bloom on my own back porch.
