Sailboats and Hollyhocks ~ 18x24 pastel on sanded paper
Two years ago I went with a good friend to Lakeside Ohio on Lake Erie for the weekend. We were to meet another good friend to celebrate as we all turned "50" that year. It was June and, apparently, hollyhock season. The walk by the lake was covered in color as the hollyhocks and daylilies were in full bloom. There were sailboats sailing in the distance along with a picture perfect sky and lake. All combined in this painting to remind me of the friendship I share with these two amazing women who have been a part of my life for most of my 50 years.
