|Lilacs in a glass cup, oil on panel, 8" x 10"|
Still, I had to make some small attempt to arrest the season with a painting of lilacs clipped from the new tree (shrub really) I planted last week. It's called Wedgwood Blue and its bracts smell like childhood adventures in untended gardens around the houses of great aunts. But even now, the cut blooms are browning in their cup and the few I left on the tree are almost done. I'm already longing for next spring.
