Sailboats and Sunflowers


Just a few more paintings to add to the ever growing stash in my studio. I really enjoy painting the sea and the sky. I guess that's why I can't get enough of these sailboat paintings!!!

I love the grey, black and blue together, it's stormy and calming all at the same time.  If you want to see the other sailboats I painted, click HERE

And I had to have another go at painting the sunflower that so inspired me a few weeks ago.  This one is softer and a paler yellow.

not sure if I like it with a white mat or a black one



I do love this sunflower, though.

Have a happy week!

  2. Pretty paintings, Anne - especially love the sailboats :-) I think I prefer the sunflower with the white mat. It looks lighter and more cheery :-)

  3. Well, my favorite is the sunflower, Anne. Isn't it interesting how changing out a mat can change the looks of a painting? On my husand's laptop (which I'm using right now) the white mat looks lavender. I'm guessing the white mat looks really good.

  4. Anne you're a wonderful painter! Your paintings have movement in them. I don't know how you do that. But all three of these have that sense! So cool!

    I think the black mat would look awesome in a room with b/w's up against a b/w chevron painted wall! The white mat would look amazing in a kitchen or mud room!

  5. Anne, you're so right about the sailboat paintings being stormy but calming at the same time. Reminds me of the feeling I get during a big thunder storm. Love it. And I can hardly believe the difference a mat makes, depending on the color. I like them both, and can see them each serving a different purpose in a room design. Well done, as always!

  9. Hi Anne, Good luck with selling your artwork. I love sailboats too and have a small collection of toy boats. What about a rough linen or burlap mat for the sunflower? I bet it would look terrific.
