Sunflowers and Stone Wall
7.5x5 oil on prepared paper, archivally matted
Available at Auction on Daily Paintworks
Starting bid $99
An update for my readers:
I am restarting my Daily Paintworks blog. After a recent workshop with Carol Marine, I have returned all refreshed and inspired! I will be posting some pieces that I have posted before, but these will be now available at auction for a great price! Some will be new works inspired by the workshop, and oil sketches done on location as I work plein aire on pieces that will become larger works in the studio. The works primarily posted here will be my smaller work. Larger work will now be available through my brand-new gallery. (No website yet at larkrisinggallery.com, but watch for it and e-mail me if there is a painting you were looking for.) The new gallery is called Lark Rising, and like that bird, will lift your spirits! It is in Rockport, MA, on Bearskin Neck in the Bearskin Neck Motor Lodge lobby.
These great sunflowers were in a pot in front of the garage in our house when we lived in Thetford, VT. I liked the way they looked with the stone wall and the grass behind them. They were the short kind that look great in a pot. This piece is matted with a 3" archival mat to 12x14. It is part of the series "A Year in Bloom", 365 paintings of flowers done in one year.
