fun with flowers

It is kind of hard to resist the zinnias that are blooming in my garden - despite all the weeds -  at the moment.  I don't think I have the patience for a seriously detailed "floral" painting, but I do have a good time with these quicker studies. They are the painting equivalent of are a quick saute of the endless zucchinis that are also hidden out there among the overgrowth, as opposed to a complicated and carefully crafted vegetarian dish involving something squash-ish.  And now, back to (still another) self portrait.
