mid summer zinnia study

The bunnies didn't get to my zinnias for some reason, this summer.  They stopped at the edge of the garden where the beans were planted - and decimated those.  I guess they got full.  So here is a color study of three of my glorious, healthy, uneaten zinnias.  It is 6" x 8" on a linen covered panel. Sold
