Not So Sunny Sunflowers

Not So Sunny Sunfowers
Oil on canvas, 20x24
Please contact me for price and delivery information!

I really, really love this painting!

I love the quiet colors of the flowers themselves, and the dark, deep, moving background. I love the swirls and pale rainbows of the petals, and the curves and sort of random but orderly quality of the palette knife strokes behind the flowers.

I love the presence that this painting has - and how interesting it is.

This background thing seems like it is taking me somewhere - and I don't know where, yet. But I am willing to keep riding, and see!

This painting, and many more, will be in "Dreaming in Color," my show with Shawn Dell Joyce at the Wallkill River School in April. I hang my work on Sunday! The opening reception is on April 14th, a Saturday, from 5-7 p.m. If you're in the area, please stop in!
