Sunflowers



















A post at last! Finally completed and delivered the three paintings
that will be included in a group show opening 9/29. I found it hard
to switch to small-scale while I was working on the larger canvases
and hope to improve on that. One thing I'm learning lately is to get
out of my own way . . .

Love it! Love it! Love it! You used the space so well with these full, luscious blossoms, and I will reiterate what Dean said about your yellows - what a range!! Exciting!

Love this painting Lorraine. Beautiful loose brushwork and great values. Congrats on your show! I've been worried about all my Texas artist friends, glad to hear that you were just painting. :-)

Ces tournesols "tournent" parfaitement bien... Ils sont si vivants grâce à vous... Une oeuvre puissante.
gros bisous
