soul and purpose

"Through my paintings I hope to communicate a personal enthusiasm and respect for the natural world, thus encourage in others an active stewardship of same." -- JEANNE ILLENYE

single old fashioned hollyhocks sage green celadon vase

Hollyhocks in Celadon Vase
7x5 inches / oil on panel
This lovely painting depicts one of my favorite garden flowers, old fashioned Hollyhocks with their spectacular single blossoms.  Of course I love the double blossoms as well, but there's something nostalgic about this old fashioned variety.  This lovely sage green or celadon vase really sets off these shades of soft pink.
I'll post this to my "nothin' but pink" blog as well.

This is so pretty! Do you really have a nothin but pink blog? I love pink! I'm going to check right now!


Thank you SO much, Katherine! I love pink, too, especially in flowers! There's something so uplifting and "happy" about pink, especially when offset by a soft celadon vase. Thank you for your lovely comments. Jeanne
