Lilac Bouquet

Lilac Bouquet
by
Cheri Wollenberg
Lilacs are some of my favorite flowers.  Actually when I think of them I begin to remember times when I was a child.  My grandmother had huge lilac bushes.  I can almost smell their wonderful fragrance thinking of them.   They are lovely to paint.  Fresh colors of orchids, purples, maroons, and pinks.  Using a cool palette of colors in the forground with a warm background creates just enough contrast to allow this simple little composition to hold it's own.

Some of the best lilacs I've ever seen, Cheri. Beautifully done. And, an interesting vase too.
