A fiery flower is finished…

My newest oil painting called “Sunflower Flame” is complete!

I love the fiery ring of petals that make up this sunflower. That wasn’t my original intent, however sometimes a painting takes on a life of its own. Especially when it is one I am simply painting for my own pleasure, as was the case with this particular sunflower.

It was surprising to me how much I enjoyed the process. I was squeezing it in between two commissioned pieces, and didn’t have the pressure of making anyone happy but myself.

Below are photos of this painting as it was in progress.

Here I am, wearing my crown of petals. 🙂

  1. This is stunning! I love the symmetry of the of the flower on the top half contrasted with the asymmetry of the leaf on the bottom.

    • Thank you! Reading your insightful comments on the Vermeer painting has inspired me to thinking about planning my paintings out more carefully than I do. The symmetry and asymmetry you described was just serendipity — and my son’s good taste, as he is the one that choose the photo that turned into this painting. 🙂
