PINK ZINNIAS #4


These little pink zinnias are from my garden. The gardens took quite a hit this summer with HOT HOT temperatures and very little water. So, these are some of the surviving flowers. In this painting I wanted to work with the paint almost as one would work with a palette knife. It is brushwork, but I used a lot of paint. I liked the effect.

Tremendous effect with the thick brushstrokes Linda. And like the suggestion of the glass container - so very nice!

This has an abstract quality, Linda. I like the way you handled the glass. Very nice!
