Oxbow Sunflower CollageI spent a delightful morning painting a sunflower field at a beautiful farm north of town yesterday.

It has been awhile since I have been out to paint and I had almost forgotten how much I enjoyed it.

As with most Plein Air paintings that I do this one is almost finished but will get a little adjustment now that I have it in the studio.  You can see the step-by-step progress in this collage.

Sunflower View I  is an oil on canvas panel measuring 11″ x 14″.  SOLD!

20140907_195548I enjoyed working with a delightful family last night for a special family reunion Paint Party.  These ladies were so much fun and we laughed and painted and had a wonderful time.  The “Moonlight Over the Mountain” theme was to honor their grandmother who often sang that song to them.  What a special Paint Party!  Thanks girls for letting me be a part of it.
