I was working in the back yard this morning, raking and pulling out the dead annuals.  We have one last, lonely hollyhock happily blooming away.  I'm sure that it'll be gone by Wednesday as we're expecting possible snow and 19 degrees overnight on Tuesday.  We've had such a gorgeous fall;  I'm not looking forward to cold and snow.

Your brush strokes are exquisite in this piece, Pam. I love the depth, the color, and the softness. A delicate beauty indeed.

What a sweet little flower - it knows it's supposed to bloom as long as it can! Love your shadows and contrast. And the message of "I can bloom against great odds just by being myself." Hang in there over the winter.

Sherry, Thank you. I wish that I could keep hollyhocks growing all year!

Thanks so much Kelley. I love all the values possible in whites. I guess in all colors, really!

Celeste, Thank you.!

Thank you Debbi. I love your message! I should look at this little piece all winter!

Beautiful light shining on and through the tissue of the flower!

Fay Terry said...

Pam, this Hollyhock is just wonderful-it has a lot of spunk and is not giving up just because cold weather is coming. I love the way you've shown the light on the tips of the petals.

Pam Holnback said...

Julie, Thank you! I've been working on whites on and off for years and realize that the more colorful the gray values, the better.

Merci Martine. Aujourd'hui, la neige et le froid est là.

Thank you so much Samantha. a grouping would look great!

Katherine, Thank you. It is usually the light that is the star of a painting. And the darks seem to be the best supporting actors.

Thank you so much Fay. I hadn't been in the back yard in a few days and was truly surprised that his bloom was still there!

Hilda. thank you. I always look at Sargeant's whites. He got so many tints and shades in his!
