50 Daily Paintings Challenge
"Sunflower on Bible"
Number 2 of 50 ATC Mini Daily Paintings in 50 Days
Heavy Acrylic on 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" ATC Linen Canvas Paper
On Friday September 2nd, I didn't get a chance to paint until after midnight. Determined to stay on task, I sat down at the kitchen table and painted this little sweetie. I attended First Friday in Lancaster PA and visited my favorite Lancaster Artist Christiane David. So inspired by her work once again, I was driven to do a sunflower. I had a couple in a vase that I gathered while plein air painting at Windmill Creek Studios. I placed the flower on my bible and intended to have the writing in the background, but I just couldn't get that to look right so I left the background solid.
