It's Damn Cold In the Attic

Landscapes are not really my "thing", but I thought I'd give it a try. I tend to lose patience on a subject that has a lot of complicated elements especially on a large (for me) canvas. This was done from a photo my dad took, somewhere in Ohio...maybe Milan?
I took this photo during a walk around our Port Washington (Long Island) neighborhood this past summer. Hydrangea is everywhere, and reminds me of my grandparents' gardens in Westbury. So, this one's for you, Dad, and I hope it makes you smile.
Don't you just want to pet that li'l bee with your pinky?

Your work is gorgeous! I'm totally in love with the hydrangeas and hope that your Dad loves it half as much. If you have time, don't miss the John Singer Sargent "Venice" exhibit at the Adelson Galleries on 82nd St - just half a block from the entrance to the Met. Will only be there several weeks - perfect Artist's Date.

These are incredible. Your landscape is perfect, but I think I see more of you in the close ups, although it looks like you can do just about anything!

While landscapes may not be your favorite, this one is so well done. Never doubt your skills around landscape...you have them and they are wonderful.
