Sunflowers




I am embracing painting flowers!  I'm erasing from my memory all the old stodgy still lifes I studied in 3 semesters of Art History that had dark, boring floral themes that have kept me so against painting flowers.  Just ask my students who know me. ;)  I'm deriving my own now! This one evolved from a demo I started in my Color Cafe class this week.  The rich, oil impasto of the foreground flower was fun to do against the blended, blurred smoother background flowers.
