STRENGTH



This is an acrylic painting I did from a photo I took in Spain several years ago. The Sunflower is an amazing thing -- deceiving actually. They are so STRONG, you almost cannot break off a flower with your hands. The blossoms were HUGE and the stalks stood more than 6 feet tall!



See this in my e-store...
as a print(16"x20") or on anything from mugs, to shirts, to totes.

  2. The shapes AND textures are wonderful... as is the somewhat limited pallette and great focal points.

  4. Very nice painting, I would have guessed watercolors without reading your description. I agree they are amazing, especially a dense patch of them - strength in numbers!

  7. I agree, the sunflowers are amazing things!

    This is a lovely painting and the texture is great, I hope I also will manage to paint the sunflower one of these lovely days, since I live where they grow.

    Best regards
