Waterlily






This was a new subject for me, but I really liked the waterlily nestled on that broad dark leaf and the inky blue/black of the water.  Lots of contrast!  This painting is 11 3/4" wide by 9 3/4" high,  matted with an acid-free 3" double mat and mounted onto acid-free foamcore. 

Hope you enjoy viewing it.

Sunflower II


Sunflower II

I know, another sunflower!  Well, the season for them is short so I like to paint them while they're in bloom.
This sunflower was actually up in Westerly, Rhode Island, at Watch Hill.  I really liked the shadow being cast on the center of the flower and it was a little more dramatic than some with the sun full on.
Hope you enjoy it!
