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.

  1. Love this. I like hollyhocks too, and I've often thought about painting them and growing them.

  2. They are growing everywhere here too!! I love this free style of painting, they are instantly recognisable but there is little detail!!!
