JEANNE ILLENYE Pink Hydrangeas


Freshly Cut Pink Hydrangeas
5x7 inches / oil
There’s no mistaking that my main interest in this subject was the leaves, hence the unique orientation of the hydrangeas in this painting. Those leaves felt tender yet crisp at the base of their stalks . . . and the cool, smooth new growth borne from those wonderful woody stems, cut roughly, revealing the life within.
