Ortensie Secche / Dried Hydrangeas

Olio su tela / Oil on canvas 25 c 35 cm
Anni  fa un amica mi regalò questo bouquet di ortensie secche  proveniente dal suo giardino, hanno conservato benissimo il colore  anche se un po sbiadito , e non mi decido di buttarle anche se ormai sono un po polverose. Ma trovo che secche hanno un fascino particolare.
Spero che abbiate passato una buona Pasqua , e vi auguro un felice inizio di settimana.

Years ago a friend offered me this bouquet of dried hydrangeas  from her garden , and though a bit faded the colors still remain,  and I can't get myself to throwing them out even though they are probably quite dusty by now . I find hydrangeas particularly fascinating when dry.
Hope you  had a great Easter , and wish you a nice start of the week.

  8. Una composizione splendida che si fa fatica a credere ritrarre ortensie essiccate! Così armoniosamente sfumati i fiori nel bellissimo vaso hanno insieme grande forza espressiva e trasparenza luminosa ! Un abbraccio,Rita.

  10. Yes Jane - dried Hydrangeas are so lovely and you have captured their subtle hues so beautifully. We had a tree close by in the cemetery near our old church and my friend and I would pick them and dry them. Hope you had the best Easter. Have a great week.

  11. They have made a lovely painting full of subtle colours. We have lost ours and have had a dried bunch of them for 3 years now.

  15. I love Hydrangeas too, having a permanent bunch at the ready to paint whenever I would not throw them out either. This capture is soft and lovely Jane not a dry bloom in sight

  16. Hallo Jane,ik hoop dat je ook fijne paasdagen beleefd hebt.
    Dit schilderij is super !
    Ik hou ook van gedroogde hortensia's, met een beetje geluk kan je ze jaren bewaren door er jaarlijks een laagje vernis op te spuiten of zelfs haarlak.
    groetjes,
    Simonne

  22. I understand why you want to keep your flowers as long as you can. They are beautiful and I do the same thing, put them in a vase and keep them util someone just give me a new one. :)
    Très beau travail dans les teintes pastels. Bisous Jane

  31. These last two floral paintings are both so beautiful, while quite different in style - the first so textured and the second, so delicately smooth in its pastel tones.

    1. Ok I will have to,admit it, I am jealous. I am lucky enough to,have several hydrangea bushes, so I get them both love and dry. I have tried to do in several media and I can't get this. Darn I love the looseness, but you got the impact and it reads hydrangea

  33. I love that the hydrangea colors are reflected in the vase.
