Hollyhock Garden

Hollyhock Garden          oil             10" x 8"
Flowers have been taking a back seat to other subjects for awhile and I just had to get my 'fix'! I've been seeing a lot of Hollyhocks lately and one of the things that is so great about them is that they like the heat. Good thing, because it is hot everywhere right now! I can still look at these and feel cool(er) and refreshed though.

  9. Hi, is it OK if I forward your site to my daughter? She's an artist, too, and I know she would like to see your work.

    Thanks,
