This is an 11 X 14 inch oil painting of a lone sunflower against a bright blue sky. I paint sunflowers…a lot. It’s my obsession. There are so many ways to paint them and so many styles. Every one has their own. I’m caught between wanting simple and lots of paint, but not too much paint. I want a little detail but not too much and I want to paint with bright colors yet not too garish. I want realistic enough, but not photographic. I want dimension, but not like a computer game. Wonder if I will get bored of them one day? Nah. I love them.
