This is an original oil painting of the deep red hollyhocks that grow in my garden.
I love hollyhocks with their striking architectural form and blousy, voluptuous flowers. They always seem such joyful flowers as they reach ever higher towards the sky. I wanted to capture their wonderful sense of exuberance and joy on a summer's day.
It is signed using an archival pen in the bottom right. The painting comes in a classic chunky frame that will suit most interiors and is ready to hang.
The image size is 41cm x 41cm approx (16"x16") and is in a chunky frame that measures 54cm x 54cm.
It is painted in oil on a board prepared with two finely sanded layers of gesso.
