Hydrangeas, Cobalt Vase

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.
