Zinnias of Rendle Garden At 5' x 4' this piece is monumental. It was made for my friends Ed and Mary's garden room. I hadn't ever included a butterfly in any of my work, however, on the day I visited their garden, the butterflies were swarming this most awesome row of Zinnia's...and so this painting came to be...

A 16' wall and a southern exposure make the perfect spot for this! I think I will be collecting packets of Zinnia seeds this winter. These beauties were called "State Fair Giants".
