Suddenly I remembered I can create whatever I want. I can make believe!
And so I have.
I pulled out a matte knife and a brush. Upwards of ninety-five percent of this painting was created by scraping a knife or dabbing a #16 bright. Almost no brush strokes at all. The hydrangea bushes in my neck of the woods are not set against vivid red-orange of any kind, but look at this paniculata!
