"Summer Hydrangeas" 20x16 Oil On Linen © 2008

How can you not paint the end of the summer's Hydrangeas? I could hardly resist my hydrangeas in the back yard. Hard to believe I've waited this many years to take the time to paint them. I promise myself every year that 'this year I'll paint them'. So I finally did. SO beautiful, and SO much more challenging than I (again) anticipated. The idea, to paint the millions of little petals without painting each little petal!

My painting Co-op Vegetables was recently juried into the Oil Painters of America Eastern Regional show. The show opens Friday Oct 17 through Saturday November 15 at Richland Fine Art in Nashville Tennessee. The painting was one of the featured pieces in the October 2008 issue of American Art Collector magazine in an article about the show.
