Astilbe My Heart

Astilbe My Heart   18x24  oil on linen

I always choose a strong flower shape, (like a lilac or peony or iris), to put some mass in my composition that automatically tends to draw the viewer's eye.  Today's setup I did not do that.  All the flowers I chose are smaller blossoms or very light airy clusters.  Instead I used the glassware to add the more solid masses.  It is just a little different twist. 
 I used all shades of green in the glassware just for the challenge of getting variety in those subtle differences.
