"little hollies"



I love these hollyhocks! Can you tell that they're painted on panel instead of canvas? For some reason, hardboard panel gives me the opportunity to apply the paint much thicker (which is so fun) and it seems much more "painterly" and immediate instead of thought out so much or like a photograph.

This little painting just says "Spring" to me.

Oh, and I also have a new hollyhock painting for the 150 Challenge. To view, go to:


  1. This is wonderful - love the effect of the thick paint.

  2. Carla,
    Thanks and you better be painting!
    I have a photo of you and your hubby in Madrid that I want to paint if I can find it. You're hugging out in the middle of main street.
