1/11/13 "For Vincent", 5x7 oil on panel
Saturday I got into the studio and worked on a textured canvas covered panel (as compared to the smooth gesso panels I have been using. It is actually recycled from an earlier painting. I had covered the surface with a dark Indian red several months ago. You can see it peeping out around the flowers.
I love sunflowers! They just make me happy. I had a great deal of fun "carving" into the surface of the wet paint. It's fun to loosen up and toss the paint around. Sunflowers also remind me of Vincent Van Gogh.
I am grateful for the many blessings of my life as it is today.
