Sun in the Rain oil painting



After all the rain we have had here in Minnesota the sun is starting to make an appearance. It seemed appropriate to give you sunflowers. I bought this plant and set up out on my deck to paint it. It is a seemingly shy plant, turning its flowers to gaze towards the ground. I love painting these flowers. Using expressive brush strokes and thick paint really seems to be fitting. Maybe it's my inner Van Gogh.
