Sunflowers - SOLD

Sunflowers, Done
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 30" x 40"

I wanted to post the final version of the large sunflower painting I've been working on all week.
I'm pretty happy with it. I still have to go around all the edges, top, bottom and sides, but I'm waiting with that for the front to be dry.

Large Sunflower commission, Progress

I thought you all might like to see the painting I'm working on right now.

 My still life set up. Very sophisticated and professional, don't you think?

A good start, some flowers done, some not..

Almost done, lots of tweaking to do, some decisions to make (polka dots or not), (change the values on the bottom, lighter table edge and darker beneath?) and some changes to make; leaves, bowl to green. But all in all, I'm pretty happy with it.
Oh, did I mention that it's HUGE? 30" x 40" Big for me, anyway.
So definitely a challenge.

Beach Sky
Oil on Canvas Panel, 12" x 16"

Back to the landscapes, and thinking today about sand and surf.
Maybe some rain blowing in?

Hydrangeas in a Jar - SOLD

Hydrangeas in a Jar
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 11" x 14"

I do paint hydrangeas all year round, but it's especially fun to have real, live models to paint from.
Yesterday I trudged across the neighborhood with my scissors, knocked on a neighbor's door, waited, knocked again, waited to ask if I could clip a few stems from their huge bush. No answer, and there's the bush with about 100 blooms...what would you do? (Clearly, I clipped.) Ah, purloined hydrangeas...
