Terrah's Hydrangea Bouquet
Terrah sent in a gorgeous bouquet of white and blue hydrangea. She wanted the painting to look more like a bouquet than a landscape or something abstract, so I focused the majority of the flowers in this way.
Hydrangea are a finicky flower - they wilt VERY easily unless they're in water, so some of them did turn naturally during the shipping process. They are pressed as individual smaller flowers (one stem contains dozens!) and then re-assembled here to create the bouquet look.
This is a 12x12 painting, and can be hung from the side or from the corner.
