|Blue & White & Blue|

by Pat Fiorello
If you've been following my blog for awhile, by now you know I LOVE hydrangeas and love to paint them. They are a lot of fun and seem to have their own little personalities with the little petals that stick out in different directions and catch the light.
Over the past few years of working on more still life paintings, I've also amassed quite a collection of blue and white ceramic pieces including some Blue Willow (from the famous Blue Willow restaurant in Social Circle GA), other Chinese pieces from various antique shops, garden shops and any/everyplace else I run across them. ( I have got to stop! I mean shop).
The blue and white goes beautifully with lots of color combinations for flowers- red, yellow, pink and of course blue.
Have a happy Memorial Day weekend. Hope it's a great kick off to a fun-filled summer!
