|Hydrangeas, Cobalt Vase, Oil on Board, 12"x12"|
The photograph is a bit out of focus, but the color is accurate. Initially the ground was going to be a densely dark gray/blue. But currently I'm considering the color here. This is a commission for a baby gift and perhaps a lighter palettee is more appropriate. I've painted this vase before and always loved the form. The glass is a very transparent cobalt.

|Geraniums, Oil on Board, 16 3/4" x 24 1/2"|
The weather is so very humid that the red areas have not completely dried in 14 days. I did work into one with some values, and the others I simply applied another layer of red to address transparency. The left side of the photograph has glare today.
