Hydrangea Inspirations


Welcome.  I am so happy that you stopped by.  My garden gate is always open for you to come in and sit and relax with a cup of tea while I share with you the inspirations for my art.  I love panting Hydrangeas and am always so happy when they are in bloom.  Last year I accidentally over feed several of my favorite Hydrangea bushes and they have not  bloomed this year. Needless to say  I  learned the hard way to go easy on the food..  

Let's join Bentley, my Studio/Garden Assistant, in the garden to look for Hydrangea inspirations that have appeared in some of my paintings - I love the purple/blue ones and did not realize how often I paint them until I looked around my studio!!!!
















































Thank you for stopping by.  I love hearing from you and sincerely appreciate your visits, e-mails, comments and those of you who follow my blog  Please let me know if you have any questions or would like to see me paint something special.

Have a lovely week.  Blessings, Erin

Love hydrangeas they grew around my house as a child, we would hide in them they were so huge and the blue flowers are the best.

Beautiful painting. I love hydrangeas, sadly I'm unable to grow them as Perth is far too hot for them. My husband was born in the Azores Islands where the hydrangeas are the national flower, lining country roads, etc...

Such a beautiful post! Hydrangeas have got to be one of the prettiest flowers on earth. That shade of blue is gorgeous along with your painting!

Your hydrangeas are wonderful and everything in the garden looks lovely.

I have to share a story with you. I held a little high school reunion here over the weekend. One of my friends, whose father was our doctor shared a story. Her dad took the family to Hawaii for 5 years after he finished medical school. When it was time to return to the mainland, he chose California over his home state of Ohio. He had 2 choices - a practice, plus a home on Balboa Island would cost him $23,000 - 1953. Instead he chose to buy a practice in Covina where we all grew up. He said he did not choose Balboa Island because the practice would be seasonal or the geriatric crowd. His 5 children have berated him ever since they knew of his decision. Imagine choosing Covina over Balboa Island. None of us live in Covina any longer.
