"Zinnias" are a garden favorite by people and pollinators alike. Their many colored blossoms are perfect landing pads for butterflies, bees and hummingbirds. Zinnias are annuals, so you need to plant them every year, but the seeds are super easy to collect and grow. They have sturdy stems so make great cut flowers to enjoy in an arrangement. With so many varieties to choose from I'm sure there's one for everyone!
This original mixed media artwork was drawn with a water soluble pen with my non dominant hand on a collaged substrate of papers including some from a vintage textbook on beekeeping. I added a wash of gesso before doing my drawing, then brought the piece to life with watercolors.
The artwork is 4" x 6" on paper and will be shipped to you in an archival sleeve so that you can frame it to your liking.
