Summer Hollyhocks - Door County Plein Air Festival

On Day 2 of the Door County Plein Air Festival, I spent the morning at the Edgewood Orchard Galleries in Fish Creek. Edgewood is a most beautiful gallery that is bursting with amazing artwork and surrounded by gardens that are truly inspirational. These hollyhocks were my favorite...

In the afternoon, I hightailed it to a spot I had found before the festival started. I knew the sun would light up this little shop at the end of the day, and that some fun, dramatic shadows would be in the mix. I was not disappointed when I got there. This piece sold at the gala to a sweet family who followed the festivities and encouraged me all week. The painting will be going off to college with their oldest daughter in the fall. That makes me soooo happy! All my best to Miss T.S.!
