Short Stem, Long Leaf, 6 x 6 " oil on panel, ©2012, Fay Terry
I used to think that sunflowers must go in a tall vase to accommodate long stems, but ideas change. This tiny pot is my vase today with a small cup inside to hold water. I found the lilac colored pot at Crate And Barrel accompanied by the cutest little matching saucer in the world. Did I remember to use the saucer in the painting? No, indeed, I was in too much of a hurry to start painting my morning still life set-up. This calls for another use of my latest purchase very soon. You're going to love it with the saucer!
