Oh my! That is quite a field!! :D
Striking. The field of sunflowers is nice enough but coupled with that dramatic red sky...wow.

Beautiful! Is that from the IRL? It looks a bit familiar.

Fabulous. Not keen on the red sky, but anyway :D

Thanks for the various points of view -- actually, it's based on a copyrighted photo/poster that I purchased. I'd love to sell prints of my painting but am concerned that it would be a violation of copyright laws. Any insight on this?

It will be in violation of copyright. You can use copyrighted images for educational purposes only, but not to sell prints or to sell the actual painting.
Next time I suggest that you get permission. There are numerous copyrighted photography sites that many of the users are flattered that you want to use their photographs. Often they will give permission for you to use their photograph. There are also other sites with copyright free photographs (morguefile and here in the RIL), and others.

Thanks Carol - that's what I thought. Since I'm new to the forum I haven't really had time to study what's available to me. I had no idea the RIL was available - can't wait to browse through! If I develop a gallery of my work is there anything wrong with showing the painting as "Private Collection" just for reference--not for sale?

Nothing wrong with that. You can show it as an example of your style.
