Commercial Street Hollyhocks



 

Yes, the stars of the show here were actually the hollyhocks but I forgot to put them in the title. I took another shot at this because I needed the practice with such complicated subject matter. This on is 10x10 on a RayMar panel. Summer in New England is incredibly short but sweet and I'm enjoying the weather and the beach. Today my mama and I are going to lunch at the ocean side Fairview Restaurant. I'm posting this sneak preview of my painting in process. A 12x12 version of the Classic Bug. Stay tuned.

Gorgeous floral and oh so impressionist feeling! Can't wait to see the VW; I love old car paintings!

Love, love the hollyhocks. And you're probably going to kill me, but I really like the Classic Bug painting just the way it looks now. Very Da Vinci-esque! I'm sure I'll love the finished painting, too!

Love the hollyhocks, but Mary!!! This bug is just terrific as it is... I wonder if anyone else thinks it should be left that way it is now???

Crystal Cook said...

Absolutely beautiful Mary! Those hollyhocks are so full of color and joy, it's wonderful! And I LOVE seeing the work in progress of the bug, I think it would be really cool to leave it as is personally. :)
