Very sweet and love the soft colors. Colorado sounds wonderful this summer. Beats the scorching heat in Texas. Miss you.

Wow- I like the patches of color that don't say too much, but just enough. Nice statement!

You must have a beautiful yard with all these flowers. Pretty little painting.

Would love to have your garden. This painting is beautiful and the colors are so soft.

Virginia Floyd said...

Very beautiful painting. L love the loose brushstrokes and the soft colors. I think of hollyhocks as a very old-fashioned flower. I think my grandmother grew them in her vegetable garden.

I recognized your beautiful hollyhock right away! They are crazy tall here in Cleveland too. Such a lovely flower, not the easiest to compose though. Nice job!

Amy, Thanks. Flowers are just 3-d art.

Thank you Kelley, My husband and I both enjoy gardening. Or should I say that my husband doesn't like mowing, so we have lots of garden space!

Virginia, Thank you. Yes, hollyhocks do seem kind of of fashioned! Never thought of having them in the vegetable garden. maybe they help keep away bugs.

Thank you Dayna, I love them , too!

Loriann, Thanks, My challenge may take awhile, but, it is a fun one!

Thanks Susan, No, actually I'm not eating many donuts!
