These are called the “Dance of the Sunflowers” numbers 1 and 2. Named because I can really just feel the joy coming out of these happy flowers, and really feel and see the movement as they dance in the breeze from high uptop their stems. Sunflowers are so fun and interesting to grow- every stage is exciting. I love planting them in my yard if I can keep the squirrels from digging them up and the deer from munching them down- they are very entertaining to watch grow and bloom.
I painted these paintings at the same time and it was absolutely delightful! It’s a new way of working thanks to the fact that I recently rearranged my studio to make my second standing easel available. Such a nice set up for working in this way, or setting reference sketches, photos, or even my IPad next to me to look at photos on my screen while I paint.
These are 12 x 12 and 11 x 14, oils on canvas. Both will be framed when dry. Enjoy!
