christiane kingsley ~ Harmony (hollyhocks)
oil on canvas
6" x 24" x 1.5"
A new addition to my Hollyhocks series. This time, I used a palette very different from my usual hollyhock colors. I was aiming for a fresh, cool and soft look. I kept thinking about linen and spring lily of the valley for some reason . . . thus the pale colors and the green. These elegant and somewhat old-fashioned flowers remind me of happy, lazy days in a sunny garden. Beautiful alone or with its companion piece, Among Friends.
