Hydrangea - Finished !!

Finished this today, and got it entered in the project on time!!
I'm actually quite pleased as to how it turned out. Have a couple more in mind, larger scale.
The background was an experiment for me, as I usually do a very dark one,
but wanted to play with the light and colors, hoping to give it a lovely airy flair.:)

Acrylics on 11x14in need to frame if you don't want to.

Thanks Gina!!!

This is so beautiful! Very peaceful and serene. Love it.

Lovely! I like the way the painting fades off into the background. The only thing I'd do differently is make some of those shadows darker... then again, I'm a huge fan of high contrast! This has a nice, soft feel to it. Looking forward to the next one!

I love your style! Reminds me a bit of Georgia O'Keefe. I just came from a trip from New Mexico, and wrote three posts about my trip, her art, and my homage to her. If you have a chance to visit, I hope you might find it interesting!

I would like to invite you in joing the business card exchange.
