This is a 12 X 16 inch still life of sunflowers and grapes in an orange vase. One of these guys is trying really hard to reach those grapes. This painting will be included in my collection painted for the Mountainair Sunflower Festival.
This is an 11 X 14 inch floral still life oil painting of sunflowers, Iris and gladiolus. I went back and forth between white and purple for the iris color and finally decided on white and used the purple in the vase and grapes.
These sunflowers are infatuated with the grapes. Wooooah! Oh oh oh! Grapes! The irises say where where? Meanwhile, the gladiolus is reaching down for one.
This is an 11 X 14 oil painting of sunflowers in a vase. Most of them appear to be sleeping except the one in the back who has a case of the yawns. I contemplated whether I should paint Zees coming out of the lower right hand sunflower who seems to be catching flys during his nap. However, I decided that if he wasn’t sleeping and snoring…then he is looking at the sunflower who fell out of bed…whoops! Ooooh. You okay guy?
This is an 11 X 14 inch oil painting that I painted while thinking about camping; more specifically, a camp fire. I painted this for the Mountainair Sunflower Festival 2016.
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.
This is a 16 X 20 inch still life oil painting of a crowded group of sunflowers in a bright green vase. I am painting sunflowers in preparation for the Mountainair Sunflower Festival at the end of August.
This vase of sunflowers looks like it just had a really big dinner.
This is a 12 X 16 inch oil painting of purple cactus blooms against a warm desert mesa.
