Oil on Canvas Panel, 8" x 10"
SOLD at $40, plus $10 shipping. (at $ .50 per square inch)
My lovely sunflowers are beginning to fade, they droop a bit more every day. But I wanted to get at least three paintings out of them, so here is the last. The petals are shriveling too much to be "good models." I may just do some sketching of the droopers, since I like this stage as well.
But for painting, it's on to other subjects now.

Oil on Canvas Panel, 11" x 14"
Available at $
I think this one turned out really nicely. I was very free in the painting, since it's done on an old canvas, with nothing to lose. I've also dropped the price a little, since I didn't even sand the canvas down, just left the bumps and textures. Here's the old canvas, just for fun. See if you can spot the parts that I left showing.

Oil on Stretched Canvas, 11" x 14"
SOLD at $77 with free shipping. (at $ .50 per square inch)
These sunflowers come with a bit of a story. I got them yesterday at the Saturday Farmer's Market here in Chestertown, which is wonderful, as are all farmer's markets. They are the huge ones, with stems about an inch thick, and faces that I estimate at 8" across. I broke two glass vases trying to balance the stems in the vases, and in the process, got water all over my kitchen. Finally, I remembered my heavy ceramic pitcher, and used that. It seems to be working.
