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.
