Zinnias and Marigolds

The house where I grew up in Salt Lake City, Ut had a long wooden fence along the driveway that separated our yard from our neighbors.  My mother always planted flowers along the fence–tall zinnias in the back with shorter marigolds in the front.  They were  planted from seed and would bloom in their glorious splendor about mid June through September.  I loved those beautiful flowers and have been taken with zinnias and marigolds ever since.   I have tried to capture these flowers from my memory in this small painting.
