The Hollyhock blossoms are blocked in with mixes of Magenta + Dioxazine Purple + White and Magenta + White. The flowers are extended over the sides of the canvas.

Sunflowers give a cheerful welcome on the left side of the door. I use the same sequence Flowers First, Leaves Last to block them in.

Ms. Chippers looks down on the pretty kitty, she’s careful to stay out of reach.

Mr. Chippers, the bright red male Cardinal, balances on the broad leaves of the Sunflower while Sasha enjoys her Revel in the Sun! We’re done. I really appreciate you visiting our studio today. AND…..HAPPY LEAP DAY! Lots of Hugs,

      Oh my Celia, Thank you for your wonderful comment. You’ve made my day. I do list my paintings on eBay. I’d be happy to add you to my email list so you’ll know when I put one up for auction! I really appreciate you reading my blog. Hugs, Mikki

    Mikki, It’s no wonder your paintings fly off the walls of your art galleries. They are so full of color and life.
