Beauty in Sunflowers

Beauty in Sunflowers

Yesterday I had the most wonderful morning painting “en plein air” at Oxbow Farm.  There is the most beautiful field of sunflowers there that just needed to be painted.  I tried to take step by step photos to share today of one of the paintings that I did.  When I work outside I can usually get a painting about 85-90% finished and then after a day or two of letting the paint “rest” I will complete it in the studio.

I call this “Oxbow Sunflowers 1“.  It is an oil on canvas measuring 9″x12” and is available framed for $275.

Being outside and painting sunflowers was such a treat after painting all the ball parks I have been doing the last few months.  It was a nice break.

Oxbow Sunflowers is an acrylic on canvas measuring 24″x30″.   (SOLD) It was painted for the show at the Blue Ridge Arts Council that opens this Thursday called “Farms and Barns of Warren County” to celebrate the 175th Anniversary of the county.  It will be available at the show this week.

This is painted combining two photos taken by the owner of this Rockland farm showing the brilliant large sunflowers that took over the landscape there this summer.
