Sunflower Shadows

My favorite part is the shadow behind the vase and the vase itself (pottery barn vase!). Might need a few more details in flowers, but mostly done. These flowers were dying fast, so glad I got a painting done. Especially since I bought and paid for them at the grocery store! When its hot here in South Carolina, I do a lot more still life paintings while I wait for the weather to cool down. 11x14 Acrylic

Country Road Sunflowers

A simple subject, but it worked as a small plein air painting. This scene was only a few minutes from my house, so that was nice too! Acrylic 6x8.

More Boats- Maine

I love all my boat photos from various vacations. They are fun to paint! 9x12 acrylic

Lemon attempt

I worked on this for two days and just couldn't get it right. Might try it on a new canvas tomorrow. I think the warm, cream colored bowl and the cool shadows are confusing me. Frustrating! Acrylic 11x14
