This cheerful summer still life came by way of an afternoon cutting some newly blooming zinnia’s from my garden. I have enjoyed planting zinnias over the past 2 years and look forward to their vibrant palette of colors each summer. This years flowers came from seeds I harvested from last years zinnia planting. It was fun to learn how to do that.
The painting has a comforting warm nature with lots of texture and a spontaneous feel.
This is indicative of how the painting came to be. It was something that wasn’t planned but inspired by just enjoying how this little gathering seemed to resonate so well with the simple glass canning jar.
