A Stalk of Hollyhocks by Sheri Jones

A Stalk of Hollyhocks by Sheri Jones
12x34 oil on canvas
This painting was inspired from a painting trip to the Botanical Gardens in Ft. Worth.  I painted with friends that day, and took lots of photos of the blooming hollyhocks.  I loved painting this is in the airconditioned studio. It was 115 today! 
This odd shaped canvas lent itself well to the tall stalks of the hollyhock. The paint is applied thickly with the palette knife and is full of texture.   This painting is available for purchase. $350.00
