Giant Zinnias


ANY time spent painting a garden is time well spent!  The Monday Morning Watercolorists met at the Anita Gorman Discovery Center for our weekly paintout, and I knew I wanted my oils for this place.  Without even scouting the grounds, I landed at the zinnias in the front community garden beds - along with two artist friends.  Its so fun to use thick, bold color right out of the tube on those petals - they almost seem to pop off the panel!  I find so much inspiration in a garden, and this one was a joyful paint - even though the hot dry weather is showing a bit on the leaves!  These blooms will go out in a blaze of glory, and are now immortalized on my panel. Painting number 4353 in 4353 days.
