Garden Fairy in Hydrangea, Oil Painting by Linda McCoy

Stopped at a garden center and they had the bluest Hydrangea's I've ever seen. We tried to grow these several times, but by the end of the hot summers here they are just crispy sticks. I really like them, the flowers are huge, fragrant and delicious to paint. I added the little garden fairy, I liked the way the blue and green were reflected in the crystal ball when I put the set up in sunlight.
Just a bit of whimsy on a rainy day.
