The Gardener’s Favorite

I’ve been wanting to paint sunflowers again, but there were a few online art classes that I was taking first, before I could delve into my annual sunflower ritual. I paint them usually this time of year, for a friend of mine, who loves them…and she has quite a few of my sunflower paintings. 

This year, I used Monet’s Bouquet of Sunflowers painting, as my inspiration for the flow and composition of each of these paintings. Mine is a loose interpretation of the close up details of his painting.

Anniversary Sunflowers – 8 x 10 inch acrylic on art panel

Sunflowers in September – 8 x 10 inch acrylic on art panel 

The Gardener’s Favorite – 5 x 7 inch acrylic on art panel

Look to the Sun – 5 x 7 inch acrylic on art panel

I painted these at the same time, so I love how their colors flow from one to the other. Three of these paintings are now available in my online art shop, ArtcyLucy Studio on Etsy.

I don’t think I am done yet with sunflowers!
