Sunflowers and Shadows

Sometimes in the cold, dreary days of winter, I paint from reference photographs that I took during the warmer weather. This is a painting I did last winter on a very cold, dark day. The photograph was taken from a still life I set up in my porch during the summertime. I immediately became lost in the process of painting this one. The bright colors of the sunflowers are so warming and cheerful! It lifted my spirits and I hope it does the same to yours!
