Sunflower Garden Party 11 X 14 Inch Oil Painting 

This is an 11 X 14 inch oil painting of a little sunflower garden.  I look at sunflowers and see expressions on their faces.  These sunflowers seem like they are having a intense, strategic conversation in a huddle.  The little one in the bottom left corner wants so badly to play.  Put me in coach!  He is too little and I don’t think the other sunflowers are having it.  Or…maybe it is three kids asking their parents for a sleep over after the garden party…please….please?  

I painted this one for the Mountainair Sunflower Festival at the end of August.

    1. Thank you Margaret. My mom sent some some pics of her giant sunflowers yesterday and I was giggling because one of the flowers she sent reminded me of pictures that people take of their dogs up close in their face so that all you see is a snout and a fun house look to the dog. Not was great. Sunflowers have so many different looks.

        1. Last year, you couldn’t get through my sidewalks without being wacked in the face by sunflowers. My husband told me I needed to thin the herd…so I said okay, I will let the chickens out in the spring and they can do that….well, they really love sunflowers…seeds, flowers, leaves, stems….and they ate most of my seedlings because I forgot they were out there!!!! So I have few sunflowers this year and the holly hock have taken over, so I will have to start working on holly hock paintings. I will be on good chicken watch next spring.

        2. I Can’t remember not liking sunflowers even as a kid. I used to draw sunflowers as a kid and other flowers too. Imaginary flowers. Yellow isn’t even my favorite color so that is weird.

    1. I am! But I think yesterday’s was my last for the festival anyway in oils because of dry time. I may do some on acrylics, but I think I have plenty to take and I got camping to do in a few days. Thank you!
