Oil Floral of Hydrangeas in Silver Urn, 9" x 12"

"Competition in Elegance"

This is 9" x 12" painting of Hydrangeas in a Silver Urn. That said for Ebay and Google searches, this is actually a small copy of an original pastel I painted a number of years ago. The original pastels is quite large so this was a real challenge. I love reflective objects and satin cloth falls into that category. Here the reflections in both the silver urn and the gold cloth compete with the beautiful blue/purple tones of the Hydrangea to present a study in elegance. I used a lot of thick paint in the Hydrangeas and the Urn is quite detailed. Cloth is always a challenge to do well. Enjoy!
