Blue Hues and Summer News

Hydrangeas have been abundant and fabulous this year -- 
alas, the blue blooms have faded by now in our part of the South, 
but it's still fun to look at some different recent and past interpretations 
of a favorite summer inspiration...

June, 2018, Abundant blues in my garden

June, 2018, Fresh Cuttings in a tiny vase,
chez moi

And, also July, 2018, some Late Cuttings, 
in my studio:

Now to the painted ones --

And finally, below is a little study I recently did of Sarah and Eli 
from a photo taken when they lived in 
Sitka, Alaska!  
They are bigger now and live in North Carolina...

BTW, I am teaching two workshops in North Carolina next week --
got an email today that two spots have opened for the first workshop 
at the Bascom in Highlands, NC.
