I’m painting sunflower #4 today

My newest oil paintings are Sunflowers! When I’m though, there will be five square paintings that each measure 24″ x 24″. They are all in various stages of progress… as shown in the photo below:

Here are four of the five paintings in my newest series called "Sunflowers!"

Here are a few photos of the progress I made when I was painting in my studio today.

I painted the sky a couple of weeks ago. I waited until this background dried before beginning the flowers so that the blue and yellow didn't bleed into each other.

I spent about 30 minutes mixing up the paint before I began painting the petals.

I paint from top to bottom so that I can rest my hand on the canvas to support my hand when I'm painting small details.
