zinnias



These flowers were purchased from our local Wednesday afternoon farmers' market. While drawing them, I noticed they do not have that "perfect" store bought quality. The flowers are organically grown at a local place, Montessino Farms. The imperfections are probably from wind and weather...the way fruits, vegetables and flowers are intended to be raised. In my opinion, these imperfections give them great character. The produce is also wonderful!

OMG, as my daughter says, your art is fantastic. But I am partial to black and white art.

Thank you designingfairy! I appreciate the nice comment. Most people are partial to the b&w art.
