I have two hydrangea plants in my front yard that have never really done that well. They either have not gotten enough water or they are planted where they get too much sun. So this year when the June gloom hit in May and stayed until today, my hydrangeas just thrived. I don't unually pick them for vases, but I wanted to paint them. So I did two small ones. This one and another I will post next.
I toned my canvas rose, which I think in the end gave the overall painting a very warm feeling.
