Bouquets of One original painting
12" by 12" acrylic on a cradled wooden panel.
I wanted to catch how these zinnias looked with light streaming in on them. I was so excited that they grew in our garden! They somehow survived our hot summer and neglect while we were out of town.
This summer my husband and I had a fantastic trip to Santa Fe. We saw a show of Georgia OKeefe and Ansel Adams work together. Never had realized they were friends. Apparently Okeefe helped him get his start. We saw a lot of wonderful art and were surprised at the amount of contemporary art. It's not all southwestern anymore.
