Two different approaches with these 
paintings. The first was painted
"en plein air" French for 
painted in the open air. 
The oakleaf hydrangea was so abundant 
and beautiful it inspired me to 
take my pallet out and paint in the garden.

Of course the pink hydrangeas in the vase
were set up in the studio and painted
with dramatic lighting. 

Either way, hydrangeas always inspire me!

Light From Above, Pansies

Light From Above, Pansies

Visit my online store for other available paintings

As I started this painting
I embraced the fact that I had
Light From Above
which created both a glow of light
on these delicate pansy blossoms
plus also a pleasing shadow pattern

And then I thought...
it is surely a blessing to have
some light from above.
