Copper Kettle / Study

Color! The richness and variety of the orange in the kettle, fabric and flowers are complimented by the blue green of the foliage. To my eye this is irresistible!

Hydrangea / study II

My hydrangea wouldn't win in any garden contest, but I love it dearly. For one thing, I never know what color (s) the blossoms will be in any year, so that"s the first surprise. Also it has an independent blooming schedule, preferring to listen to an inner prompt, rather than just following the usual bandwagon. Perhaps this is all because it is in an unlikely location, so it has to work harder than it's conventional brethren.
But best of all, it is scraggly, and and so becomes an ideal subject to paint!
This study is 9" x 12" on cold press paper.  $200.
