Riot of Zinnias

"Riot of Zinnias"'
24" x 24"
Oil on wrapped canvas
Late last summer when the flowers were at their most vibrant, and had actually swelled to overabundance, I photographed this "Riot of Zinnias." 

I splashed and dashed on color, yet it didn't look enough like summer. So I took my Colour Shaper thingie and drew over some of the petals. The added texture makes it riotous! 

Thanks for looking.

  1. Carol, each summer I plan a giant patch of zinnias by my mailbox. Mostly because even I can grow them, but they produce such an explosion of color all summer long - it's like fireworks. Love your painting.

    1. Thanks Vic! They do throw caution to the wind, don't they? I'll have to stop by to photograph your "explosion" when they come into season.
