Pink Hollyhock

Here is another small floral oil painting:
Pink Hollyhock
Oil Painting
9" x 12"

Hollyhocks are difficult to paint; they are tall and slender and want to be vertical in an art piece, but the flowers are so ruffley and complex, as are the leaves and stems.  I chose to focus on the beautiful flowers and stems attached to the stalk.

Cards and other items printed with this image may be purchased from my CafePress shop.

And the Winner Is ... !!!

I just found out that my oil painting "Warming Up" received a merit award by Juror Janet Nunn in the 2011 Artists Choice exhibit, currently showing at the Lakewood Cultural Center.  I'm very excited about receiving this award; there are many other beautiful pieces that are also deserving.
