Oil on canvas, 20x20, $150In the middle of February, when it seems that winter will never, ever end, I love to buy flowers, especially sunflowers, which are insanely bright, ridiculously cheap and delightfully long-lasting. These flowers glowed, just glowed, as though the light were inside them.
The sunflowers finally died. But lo and behold, and in spite of the fact that it is snowing yet again, spring is coming. At 5:45 last night, there was still light in the sky. I've heard spring birds singing in the yard, and bluebirds have visited the feeders on their way somewhere.
I do love winter - and I love the snow. It just goes on too long!
I am not sure of the background of this painting. It is very bright. I might go over the pink with another color, or might just leave it. If you have ideas, I'd love to hear them.
Thanks for reading!
