Hydrangeas, Oil on Board, 23"x34"
I spent the entire studio time on one leaf today.  When I asked the house critic if it was over worked, he only said, "I don't understand why you paint leaves that are damaged."  I said, "it makes things more interesting" and, of course, that is the way of nature. He contended that Botticelli would leave off a wart on the nose of his model.
