Hollyhock Stalks in Bloom, 8x8" Oil on canvas
It is also a time when, as we give thanks for all our many blessings, to have generous spirits for the needs of others. Of course, not all of us think deeply about this holiday.... it has become commercialized and common to us. But perhaps, now - in more difficult times - this holiday is a time to come back to the reasons we celebrate. To offer thanks to God for all he has done for us - as a nation, as a family, and individually, and to offer generosity to those around us.
The painting above is a smallish painting - in preparation for an anticipated commission. It is a bit old fashioned in its subject matter. Hollyhocks are often associated with by gone times. But it is presented in a more contemporary way. I'll keep you posted as to the commission!
