Sweet Cosmos


Sweet Cosmos
5" x 7" original oil painting
gallery wrapped stretched canvas

Available 

Cosmos flowers from my garden
bring their colorful freshness
to this vintage & tarnished
lidded silver sugar bowl.

The ornateness of the sugar jar
handles and lid,
plus a clipping of cosmos
in front of the jar,
and some reflections of
the flower hues in the
shiny surface of the bowl.
Together they bring added detail to this
lovely traditional still life painting.

Hydrangeas & Cast

Hydrangeas & Cast
8" x 10" original oil painting
gallery wrapped stretched canvas

Available in my online store

These blue & white hydrangea ..
have a supporting cast of
pink Astilbes to create a feathery combo
and pretty Liatris which join in to add balance
to this perennial bouquet from my garden
            
The clear glass vase enables
you to enjoy the detail of both
the stems and the setting beyond
             
Another blooming stem
is lying patiently in front of the vase,
ready to join the rest of the cast.
