Woodland Hydrangeas is a small work inspired by the large new container garden in the studio today. My hydrangeas are still blooming on the porch, thanks to a little help from the Calloway's potting soil and plenty of water and shade. In a few weeks, we will have new hydrangea beds installed, so I have to make a trip to the hardware store to plant some iron nails in the soil. I'm told that's the best way to get those beautiful blue flowers to bloom. Wish me luck!

What a gorgeous palette and my favorite, green blue purple. Hydrangeas are second only to lilacs as my favorites and they are such a gorgeous flower. Beautiful work, Nancy!

Your flowers are all so stunning. I love the boldness of your compositions. If you have some time, could you post something about your preferences in canvas types? I'd like to know what surfaces work best for you.

Sherry I love those colors, too! I seem to drift back and forth between the warm and cool ones, but this week we are on the cool side. hugs from Howie!

Thank you Katherine! I love that detailed thistle you are working on. On my gallery wraps, I use regular cotton canvas with a 1.5 inch edge. On my linen paintings, I use New Traditional Art Panels, they are the best!
