Art: Pink Hollyhocks by Artist Carol Thompson

"'Pink Hollyhocks' stand tall and gracefully before a white picket fence.  These midsummer beauties always remind me of grandma's home on the farm in Oregon."

Artist comment:  "This tall narrow watercolor painting is one of a three piece set of florals from my Olympia, Washington garden.  I chose to depict the 'pink hollyhocks' at their peak.  I sketched the composition, then began with a neutral (gray) background, leaving the subject area white.  Then I carefully washed in the off-white color of the wooden fence.  I began the hollyhocks with the leaves, then the blooms.  The calendulas came next, followed by the final accents of rusting nails."
