Hydrangea, 6x6 Oil on Canvas

Hydrangeas are very hard to paint. Each one is like a bouquet. They grow in lush profusion in Washington State, in colors I never knew possible. This is the most common Hydrangea, and I like the complementary colors with the lavender and green.

Flowers are the alphabets of angels, whereby they write on the fields and hills mysterious truths. ---
