Here is a commission I did recently inspired by my garden. This was last years explosion of hollyhocks in the flower box.
The year before sunflowers took over. I had over 200 sunflowers. They are a mess to clean up and I am still testing to see what I can grow here in Roanoke. So far Zinnias are the most prolific.

Flow Blue with Chinoiserie theme is a favorite subject. I love the blue willow and pagoda.
They are suggested in the painting.
34 X 44 oil on canvas.
I love seasonal paintings. Turban squash and Chinese Lanterns have the colors that are so fun to paint!
Persimmons are a natural addition. The fabric is an embroidered piece from Uzbekistan.

Laguna Coast Wilderness Park on the canyon trail walking to Big Bend. The colors are in the afternoon when the rocks are cerulean and the mountains are in purple and blue shadows.

The Laguna Coast Wilderness Park is a big destination for hikers and painters. I used to drop my kids off at school across the street at Anneliese and spend the morning painting in the canyon. Five days a week, I painted like a fiend. I knew I had to develop quickly as an artist. The park was not open to the public and I had the combination to the gate lock. I was in heaven.
