I was looking at pictures of paintings I have thrown away. Kicking myself.
This is a rework of a previous painting. Originally, the painting was purple with yellow sunflowers. I changed a few things. The most obvious being that the vase is now orange. I personally like it better because I enjoy lots of color. The orange made my day. However, my mom, for example prefers the previous version. To each his own, especially with art.
This is the previous version. I was working with compliments and kept the painting mainly to purple and yellow.
This is a 16 x 20 inch still life of sunflowers in a very cool orange vase. I am loving the colors in this painting. The orange and gold are really nice against the blues and greens of the background. Unfortunately, we have a man down once again and it looks as if only one sunflower cares. Bummer.
