Taking a month off from painting boats last month has forced me to discover some new subject material. Until this year I have hardly ever painted flowers. In fact, I have probably painted them less that five times total. Why? I have no idea. No clue.

How dumb am I? I had the time of my life painting this painting. Sunflowers in a glass with some awesome shadows? With a palette knife of course. I want to paint more paintings like this!

I mentioned I had another photo shoot this past weekend. I took about two hundred photos of lots of flowers in vases, vegetables and even cupcakes! So get ready for roses, more sunflowers, gerber daisies, hydrangeas, tulips and who knows what else.

It's very fun to mix it up a bit.

Nice composition. I like the way the flower on the right pulls you into the painting, and the way you cropped the flower on the left.

Lovely. And I agree with you - as much as I love flowers I rarely paint them! Maybe that's MY next assignment. It's on my list no doubt.
