Basket and Hydrangea

I made a basket in my friend's class at the Mispillion Art League. Later on I finished it off by lining the inside with this pretty plaid fabric I had in my stash. It looked pretty and I put it in my dining room on an old truck I got from my grandmother. Later I cut some Hydrangea from the garden to dry because it look wonderful especially in the winter and lasts a long time.
I got this wonderful idea to put some in my basket to dry and it looked even better. I had some pink paper roses that my daughter got for me from a friend that makes them and it completed my basket.

Then I got the idea to watercolor paint a picture of my basket in the garden with some of my Hydrangea. This is how came.

Basket

Hydrangea has always been a favorite flower for me and we planted three bushes when we moved here. I remember my mother-in law letting me cut some at the end of the season and bring them home to dry. It's nice to be able to have them again.

The basket turned out great! Love the hydrangeas! The painting turned out great too!
Love the basket. It's such an unusual shape an the textures are great. I'm not surprised it inspired you to paint it. The hydrangeas work so well in it.
Thank you!
