Painted these sunflowers from life. I love sunflowers. They make me happy. Found this nice poem about them..
"Light-enchanted sunflower, thou
Who gazest ever true and tender
On the sun's revolving splendour."
~ Pedro Calderon de la Barca,

Acrylic on 6x6 ampersand board. This one sold the day after I painted it... probably my quickest sale so far :D.. C&C welcome!

Not surprised it sold!
So much life and vitality in these, in such a small space!
Very confident work B - I really like those brushstrokes.
