Sunny Days

Sunny Days
18 x 18 Oil on Canvas

Another large painting - at least for me it is. I think I am still fond of smaller paintngs - I feel like I have more control for some reason. But one has to grow and stretch and try new things! Right? Lots of thick juicy paint on this one - I'm hoping it will be dry enough to drop of for a show in a few days.

I started watching the series The Impressionists last night. I highly recommend it. It's inspiring and it allows you to see these artists as human - just like the rest of us!

Deb, I love sunflowers... mainly because they remind me of home. Your art is exquisitely rendered. She has a spirit, this sunflower. She's smiling and talking and whispering things inside my head. Absolutely dazzlingly beautiful!

Nevine - I'm happy that this reminds you of home. I like that you see her as feminine and that she whispers to you! Thank you.

And thank you, Chuck. Nice to see you again!

This lovely thing would be so perfectly at home here in the south of France, where huge fields of nodding sunflowers are commonplace. It's a regional emblem, as you probably know, along with lavender.

Deb Kirkeeide said...

hmmm....Deborah, I'm thinking I need to come to France and paint!

Linda said...

Like your sunflowers. They reminded me of the painting of van Gogh "Sunflowers' . Nice :)
