Finally, finished

12×12 oil on canvas

Last summer I arrived back in Boston with a generous bouquet of hydrangea. As the blooms dried, they each became subtly shaded and fragile, irresistible to both me and the cat. Here’s a painting of one of the remaining stems prior to its feline encounter.

I started this before Christmas, and needed to select a replacement flower when returning from my cross-country jaunt. It’s satisfying.

    Ha, not quite so fast! although this painting is 12×12. My plan for 12x12x12 is more involved, a series – the same view, not sure what, possibly an interior or out a window, on the last weekend of the month at the same hour every time.

    I did visit the new Blick in Cambridge to buy 12 identical canvases.
