DescriptionI found an image of a large zinnia painting I made several years ago and was struck by the petals of thick paint. I decided I wanted to paint another (much smaller) version, emphasizing this texture and depth. This little zinnia patch is full of vivid color and the original was prepared with layers of a colorful mix of blues red and sienna before having my red-orange-yellow zinnias jump onto the top of the canvas. I hope you enjoy my Zinnia Patch!

Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, I have long enjoyed the beauty this area affords. As an avid hiker & camper, I find mountains and ocean beaches to be some of my favorite places.

I hope you enjoy my work, and sharing in my artistic journey.
