Firefly Flowers

9 x 12
oil on 1"cradled gesso board

I met my sister at a coffee shop this morning to see a painting exhibit by my friend, artist, singer, and songwriter, Susan Taylor Suraci.  Her paintings are gorgeous and inspiring and I was all fired up to paint but didn't have a subject in mind. As we were leaving I looked over and saw this scene of the cafe's patio and deck area.  It was alive with color, the sun was shining, and the crazy sunflowers were at attention.  It was like a gift!

  3. Thank you Meredith and Cathy! I see my clock is obviously off on this blog- I actually posted it just under the wire around 11pm. Hey Cathy maybe you chuckled because those sunflowers struck you like they did me - they remind me of startled Meerkats!
