Summers Child Hydrangeas is a new study on the easel, as I lay the groundwork for the new 30X40 still life of blue hydrangeas and red geraniums. These are my two most favorite flowers to paint. The client who ordered the painting came to my show at the Dallas Arboretum two years ago, and has been preparing in her mind the elements of the still life that would be a perfect fit for her home. She and her husband paid a visit to the studio about a week ago.

She took a look at a number of other paintings here, and found flowers and tabletop elements in each she liked. She picked the glass vase in one, the green apple in another, the variety of blue hydrangeas in a third, and a nice tan, neutral background color in a fourth, and voila! She created the elements of her custom painting. The tricky part is this painting will not have the feel of a container garden, but will have the more planned feel of an indoor still life, a tabletop bathed in sunlight. As soon as I get a bit more in place, I'll share some pictures with you. Stay tuned and wherever you are, stay warm!
