Painting - Watercolor And Graphite
Golden sunflowers in a field of colorful wildflowers sit in front of an old adobe home with lace-curtained windows. I painted this watercolor in Taos, New Mexico, and it was the first painting I entered into a juried art show. To my delight, it was accepted, and that was the start of a new journey for me, as I began making my art available for others to see. I really enjoyed painting the soft background garden, in contrast to the sharper edges and greater definition of the sunflowers in the foreground.
Sunflower (Helianthus annuus) is an annual plant native to the Americas. It possesses a large inflorescence (flowering head). The sunflower is named after its huge, fiery blooms, whose shape and image are often used to depict the sun. It has a rough, hairy stem, broad, coarsely toothed, rough leaves and circular heads of flowers. The heads consist of many individual flowers which mature into seeds, often in the hundreds, on a receptacle base. From the Americas, sunflower seeds were brought to Europe in the 16th century, where, along with sunflower oil, they became a widespread cooking ingredient. Leaves of the sunflower can be used as cattle feed, while the stems contain a fiber which may be used in paper production.
The original is professionally framed and matted. Size of 17x15.5 is framed size. Original is 12x9.
This original painting is available as matted and framed. It will be on display at The Denver Athletic Club, 1325 Glenarm Place, Downtown Denver. The opening reception is Friday, February 1st, 2013 from 6-8 pm, on the 2nd and 4th floors. All are welcome!
