My newest oil painting called “Sunflower Flame” is complete!
I love the fiery ring of petals that make up this sunflower. That wasn’t my original intent, however sometimes a painting takes on a life of its own. Especially when it is one I am simply painting for my own pleasure, as was the case with this particular sunflower.
It was surprising to me how much I enjoyed the process. I was squeezing it in between two commissioned pieces, and didn’t have the pressure of making anyone happy but myself.
Below are photos of this painting as it was in progress.
