I have painted countless hydrangeas of all kinds.When I finished this one I was reminded of France. Flowers were everywhere when I was there. Something about this painting looked French. Anything French seems to have an air of elegance, no matter how mundane. A person from France could read the local phonebook out loud and sound like a Shakesperian actor ( with a French accent). I,try to imagine what a French Dollar Store would look like; everything classy for a small price. . We could learn a few things from the French.
