White Flowers in a Lavender Vase

These white flowers resemble wild roses,
but I think they are actually a multi-petaled pansie.

Summer Storm

I painted this landscape using the Zorn palette,
of red, yellow, white and black.
It is my first attempt using his limited palette.
I love the way the colors form and come together
to enrich and compliment each other.
For sure I am going to try this again.

Last summer when I was in Anacortes, WA.
Hollyhocks grew in every garden, in the planters of many businesses,
and even in some alley ways.
I took several photos with the intention of someday painting them.
As I watched another artist friend painting his Hollyhocks,
I remembered my own photos and was inspired to give it a try.
I decided on a more contemporary style.
