Sunflowers Soon 24 x 24 Inch Oil Painting

It’s that time again where I anxiously wait for sunflowers to bloom.  It will be different this year.  I had way too many sunflowers for the space and was ready for a little change.  Instead of an abundance of sunflowers, I have lots and lots of holly hock with sporadic sunflowers around the yard.  I’m not sure I will like not having as many this year (I think I won’t), but I don’t think I will mind not having to tear them down at the end of the season.  I have a plan for next year and will get my sunflowers back then.

16 x 20 Inch Oil Painting Sunflowers

I painted some sunflowers.  Surprise, surprise.  This time however, I am showing them on a photo app I was messin’ around with.  This 16 x 20 oil painting of sunflowers reminds me of my dog, Trixi.  It was a painting I was working on the day she died so it will be special to me just like she is.  It kinda looks like her too! 

Sunflower Hiding Place 11 x 14 Inch Oil Painting

I really love this little sunflower painting.  It goes well with the “Sunflower Awe II” I completed a few days ago.  I like the simplicity in the colors.  The blues are cooler than what the picture shows.  The vibrancy depends on the light situation but I would describe the blues as more turquoise and aqua against golden yellows of the sunflowers and the olive tones in the stems. The picture below captures the true color of the flowers and stems.


The picture below is adjusted to show a more true color of blue.  Ignore the sunflowers.  Yikes!

Sunflower Awe II 18 x 18 Inch Oil Painting

I was in the mood for a really busy sunflower painting.  This oil painting was difficult to photograph because of the texture. No matter where I moved my lights or what angle I shot from, I couldn’t get a picture I was happy with.  The painting itself is really cool.  Every little brush and knife stroke stands out.  I like looking at it from the side.
