Every June the ornamental hollyhocks (Alcea rosea) put on the most glorious colourful show in our village of Eynsham. They seed freely and so most of them are escapees growing wild. They never fail to thrill me as I walk through the lanes of Eynsham. Queens Lane is particularly blessed with these tall plants.
They are not a native UK species – they were brought to Europe from southwestern China many centuries ago by horticulturalists and herbalists. But the bees love them, so I’m not complaining!
This painting is no longer available, and is shown here for your viewing pleasure. However, a range of print of it is available. It looks especially good printed onto a canvas.

The original painting – 80cm x 40cm - is now in a private collection in Canada. It is shown here for your viewing pleasure. If you'd like something similar, then please ask me. I love to make paintings of White Horse Hill!
