My art is a mixture of realism as well as impressionistic.
This seems to help accentuate the large flowers I paint. Having been surrounded by large gardens and greenhouses most of my life, has filled my head
with a multitude of pictures yet to be painted. Acrylic and oil seem to give the
paintings a glow that can’t be accomplished with any other medium; in this
series of mainly Hollyhocks. I called this series “Hollyhocks+” since there are
other flowers sometimes included. It is an ongoing series, which I plan on continuing as long as people enyoy seeing them.
