"Pink and Green Hydrangeas" 8" x 8" oil

The old hydrangea bush out front produced three blooms this year two were about 3" in diameter and the third one was 8"+ in diameter.   It is the largest bloomin bloom I have ever seen!   I painted the first painting with just the one bloom and I am not sure it translates well so I got a few of the light green ones from Trader Joe's.   I wanted to capture the warm pink/red glow in the center when it is lit.     My favorite part is the shadow it cast on the lower left, there are so many colors.
