Sunny Daze...

Who doesn't love sunflowers? Artists have been capturing the dazzle of them for centuries and, in fact, there have been books published of nothing but artworks of sunflowers. I've painted a few and have a large painting of a single sunflower hanging in my hall, one of the few of my own works that actually lives with me. Sunflowers are not endemic to western Canada, but I have a neighbour who grows some giants each year. I love the fields of them in France, where they are a cash crop that give the bonus of stunning colour. This little guy is 6 x 8, oil on canvas panel, and will be looking for a home on Daily Paintworks.
