Sunflowers and a favorite artist

 Sunflowers and Sweet Potato Vine, 16 x 20" oil on linen

I decided to paint large today with a still life set up in my studio. Rain started early; the flowers helped make it sunny while I worked. It is not yet finished, so I will continue to work on it. The tablecloth and the background are darker than they appear in the photo. I tried several adjustments and did not succeed in making it more like the painting.

On another note, I was in Rockland, Maine to visit two of my favorite places, The Farnsworth Museum and Dowling Walsh Gallery. Lucky me, I also saw one of my favorite painters. I had already been upstairs where his most recent paintings were just being installed. Colin's paintings just keep getting better every year and he is incredibly nice. Unfortunately, we are not standing near one of his  paintings. See Colin Page's website HERE.



  1. Love Colin Page! Great still life...especially love the pot.

  2. Thanks, Kathy! I have seen many of your great paintings recently. Your trip to the Plein Air Event in California must have been fun. I do try to keep up with my Charlotte friends!
