The view across from my desk at work.
I bought this oil painting of hydrangeas from a colleague here at the hospital who retired. She also had a demanding and often difficult job, and we often worked together on difficult patient situations. When she retired she really got into painting which she had always dabbled in before. So not only is this painting beautiful to me, it reminds me that there are many stages in our lives.
I thought this water color painting by Fifi Flowers would look lovely paired with Michelle's oil painting. Fifi has a very French-inspired colorful style that I find glamorous and cheerful at the same time. I've bought several paintings from Fifi, one of which was a custom painting of my husband and I in Jardin du Luxembourg in Paris that she did from an old photograph, for our 15th wedding anniversary. You can visit her shoppe here.
When I look at these paintings I immediately think of relaxing in my garden. Very therapeutic, indeed.
