Lavender Hydrangeas

So, after finishing another painting, I had leftover pinks, red, and purples...I began by layering the pinks and reds on the canvas as a background, having no idea where I'd go next. The vase came next, and then the lavender hydrangeas appeared. I was all set to add green stems and leaves, because, after all, flowers don't just float above the vase, stemless. Then I realized that in this painting, lavender hydrangeas did, in fact, float stemless above the purple vase, and that the painting was as it should be.

Thanks for reading my blog.
