Feeling Blue? - Think Hydrangeas!

Nothing beats the blues better than a cheerful painting, and the bright colors in these paintings will pick you up quickly. Thanks to Jill for suggesting I show these to you.
10" x 10" (25.4 cm) oil on stretched canvas with a 1.5" gallery finished side (no frame needed).
I love to paint hydrangeas! For one thing. I get to use my favorite blues. I like putting them against the orange and yellow background because it really makes the blue shine! I also like the texture I can use. Lots of thick oil paint gives them such a neat texture. (a closeup so you can see the texture)
The painting with just hydrangeas is in my Etsy shop.

This one with my violin in it is hanging in my office. It is 18x24 oil on stretched canvas.

These flowers are hanging in my lovely wife's office. She loves purple flowers, I love the blue hydranges and the red roses are for love. How sweet is that?
