Sunflowers have always been one of my favorite subjects to paint or draw in a very tight, detailed style as you can see by these pieces I did a few years ago.

I haven't actually painted since about 2008. Most of the images I do these days are photo manipulations and the occasional collage that might have just a little hand painting or drawing.

Lately though I've been kind of jumping around ... doing different things, trying my hand at things I have never done before (like jewelry) and experimenting with a new take on some of the mediums I've used in the past.

So it was time to do something different and a little challenging.  I wanted to try something a little looser and vivid.  So ...

Sunflower On Red
This was really an experiment with acrylic on a 14" x 18" canvas.  But, I think I really like it and will be doing some more along this line.
