here is the first of a series of acrylic hollyhocks for a summer show. i've become intrigued with this architectural flower.... and have set about making a small visual documentary. this painting is about 3/4's done -- i need to add richness -- and also blend the foreground with the back.
all in all - it captures the spontaneity and freshness which makes it easy on the eyes... there is also a blend of the arbitrary non-objective design with the playful realism.
oh my gawd! hollyhocks
