Sunflower Series On Display

He we are folks! The three works of my sunflower series are on display in the Kishwaukee Valley Art League Group Traveling Show in "the gallery in the making" at  Home Bound Healthcare located on Bethany Road, Sycamore Illinois open 8 to 5 weekdays. The work is not traveling; various KVAL artists will rotate work in or out every three months. Current work is on display until the end of August.

Single flower centered on canvas. Yellow flower with red, orange and yellow on the background leaves.

 I am very excited to be showing all three pieces in the same venue.  I like each composition for different reasons, but a common factor is the interesting shapes in the negative space. Other Images are lurking just under the surface as in some of my other paintings, but have not shown themselves clearly.

 "Sunflowers Three" finally made it to an exhibit and has been declared done. These three paintings may provide a launching pad for derivative works and I may continue on to four, five and six flower groupings. Actually sketches are in the beginning stage. Like many of you my full time job limits my time for my art work. I always laugh and say I am like a turtle crossing the toll way. Just keep trucking along one foot at a time.
