When I think of Santa Fe in the summer, hollyhocks always come to mind. I lived on Delgado Lane, a half block off Canyon Rd, the world famous art gallery street, in the late nineties. What a wonderful place to live. There was always something going on just around the corner. I had these hollyhocks in my garden. I wasn't an artist then but I had a dream of one being one day. Five years later, I found the Scottsdale Artist School. This painting will be up for auction on my online gallery, dailypaintworks.com, later today.
