Sunshine on Canvas

Finally, the sun has come out in the Pacific Northwest. The thermometer hit 77 degrees yesterday. After over 200 days of weather below 75, it felt wonderful. I celebrated by painting sunflowers. Not only is the color bright, but they lend themselves well to a loose style and thick paint. Summer is finally here. When the paint dries, it will be offered for sale with some of my other floral paintings at Etsy. It has been hard to keep the gallery stocked with these sunny little works of art. This painting is 5x7 inches on a canvas panel.
