SKETCHBOOK: "Sunflower's Second Chance"

I've been growing giant sunflowers in my yard this summer. I've never tried that before. This was the first of the flowers to bloom. But apparently, it got too heavy and bent over, choking itself off from the main stem. So today I decided to use it as a model on my kitchen table.

This gallery serves a two-fold showcase some of my favorite paintings in an easy-to-browse way. It is also meant to push me to get out my oils and start painting again after about a 5-year break. If you want to read the full posts with more commentary, then click on the "Paintings" label.


I wanted to make it a little easier for you to see some of my favorite sketches. I've posted hundreds of drawings on this blog over the years.  Feel free to look at the "Sketchbook" label if you want to read a more in-depth commentary on all of them.
