blue hydrangea

Blue Hydrangea - oil on panel -6x8"
Setting up still life in my studio, flowers seem to add a little joy to this freezing week. I love blue hydrangeas, i can only get pink and white ones around my place, the soil isn't acidic enough for blue. I suppose I could put additives in the soil to get blue, but it seems a sort of phony way to treat a natural thing. 


  1. Beautiful painting Sally. I love the blue ones too, but when I planted them they either died or turned pink! Actually I had the same thing happen to lilies that went from pink to yellow! Strange but fascinating.

  2. I love blue hydrangeas too! But the ones you have around your home in the summer are the most beautiful ones Ive seen, even if they arent blue. Love the painting! XO


Go ahead...make my day. I love our mini-mails!
