Magenta Hollyhocks (redone)

This painting originally had a yellow background.  I didn't feel comfortable with it (hated it actually), but due to a deadline, I stuck with it.  It hung at the "Cafe This Way" for two months.  I couldn't live with it so I finally went up and got it.  Now that I have changed the background to the color I originally wanted, I'm happy with it.  Gut instincts.  Thank you "Magenta Hollyhocks" for reminding me to forget all the rules and to express myself freely.  Lesson learned (AGAIN).

  1. Well, it's a hard lesson to remember! Maybe we need it stamped across our hands : ) Yes, it's good you stuck with your gut because you created a harmonious, luscious painting. Did you ever finish your tree from a few posts back? I'd love to see it! Love your work.
