This is just another excuse to paint lilacs! I went back into the studio after a week off in California not sure what I was going to paint.I didn't have any fresh flowers so I looked through the bazillion photos that I have collected over the last 30 or so years. What caught my eye? Surprise- lilacs in jars. The combination of the caribbean blue with the purple is always thrilling to me. This one is on stretched gallery wrap canvas - 12x12.
