Hot off the easel is my latest painting of sunflowers and fluttering butterflies. Aaaaah summer! Makes me want to jump into the painting and be there.
I was inspired by a Carl Larsson sketch of a girl among flowers. Such a simple drawing but really lovely. I began by playing with ideas. Big as life sunflowers and cosmos filled the paper. The painting sketch that I ended up falling in love with actually has two parts. There is another canvas (not shown) of my daughter in among the flowers.
I took a few shots while I painted so you could watch the painting progress.
