Stunning sunflowers, I love the light on the closer ones versus the dark one behind.
Yesterday I was doing some oil painting, which I have absolutely no knowledge about, but it is a world I will try to open up for, probably taking at least one little course just to get the basics right. Wonderful media!

Another gorgeous work! Love the way you handled the background. Always an issue for me if I have a lot of it.

Ma chère Lorraine, vos tournesols sont absolument remarquables. On peut sentir la surcharge de leurs coeurs qui leur donne une force... Et l'ensemble des pétales les rendent aériens...
Vos couleurs sont somptueuses et très harmonieuses.
gros bisous

I went back yesterday and took my daughter. I also got to see your three pear paintings. All gorgeous!

Hi Lorraine, I saw your paintings in the your show, on Virgina's blog. Absolutely beautiful! The look so impressive and powerful three in a row. Your painting technique is blowing me away! I long to paint like you. Thanks so much for your kind words on my post. Good luck with the show, I see three red dots in your future.

Lorraine, I would have given anything to have been able to attend your show. Really amazing work. I still aspire to paint more in the style you use. Love your work!!

I have tried several times commenting and it doesn't go through, so hopefully you won't receive this 3x...LOL Just wanted to tell you how much I like these sunflowers, Lorraine! The colors and background is outstanding!!

Virginia Floyd said...

Lorraine, are you working on a new painting? Are are you resting up after the effort of getting paintings ready for a show?

Lorraine Shirkus said...

Thanks so much everybody for your always generous comments!
Virginia: I've been framing small stuff, have a new outlet in Denver and getting ready to ship. And, just (maybe) completed a 24 x 24 of a single tree. Have to live with it for awhile to know if it's finished . . . Also working on a 6 x 6 of tomatoes which is giving me great trouble! I guess framing could be construed to mean "resting?" A day and a half to recharge.

It's almost as the the flowers themselves have personality. Really great piece Lorraine.
