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.
