These images date to the summer of 2008. Mary gave me those gorgeous orchids in dark pink and white, white lilies and pale green Annabelle hydrangeas. While I was arranging them, my chartreuse scale model Mercedes Benz hatchback literally rolled into view, and I decided to shoot some color studies with them all. I have a gorgeous vintage art glass vase, also chartreuse, a pale yellow frosted vase and a mint green square kitchen bowl I use as a vase, and gathered all of the items outside on the porch to shoot. The green foliage and trees in the background looks really good to me right now as I look outside today at our barren late fall yard.
