I visited my friend over the weekend.  Her hollyhocks were in bloom by the pine trees.  The blue spruce to the left, and some other pine to the right.  Her flowers, however, were white.  I needed to paint color, so I gave my friend the gift of pink hollyhocks in that part of her garden. the foreground posies were almost this color, but not quite this shape.  Oh, well, I'm sure she'll forgive me.  

It's another Art Bites paper panel, but I'm ready to move on to canvas again.  I have a show coming up, for which I want to have several new paintings of chocolates ready to frame and hang.  I have the goodies, just need to arrange them and prep a big canvas. I wonder how large "too large" is for a piece of chocolate?
