The Sunflower

So much for getting projects done, I've been painting a closet. Not the most interesting thing in the world to post! Instead I have another painting to share!!! The painting bug has got me again.  I promise to have a DIY project to share very soon.

Here is my brand new painting - and my absolute favourite piece to date:


And now for a closer look.



I'm so happy with this painting!!  I've been trying to paint sunflowers for two years and I think I've finally got it!  I'm doing a happy dance.


And if you want to try your hand at creating your own sunflower painting, I'm adding the link to a Youtube video that helped me immensely!  Happy Creating!!


Have a great day!

  6. Love the painting Anne ... sunflowers are my favorite too. My first painting was a vase of sunflowers and it turned out pretty nice for being self-taught.
    Do you sell your painting in a shop?
    Have a great day.
