Parisian Yellow

Even though there is still snow outside my mind wants to think of fall colours. If it warms up this weekend, as is predicted, then perhaps we will see some autumn tones...
These sunflowers were starting to drop some of their petals, which made them look all the more appealing to paint. The rich, reddish hue of the backdrop creates the ambience of an old-world Parisian bistro, where you would see flower filled vases on the entrance table, bar and individual tables. The French really know how to create atmosphere!

Here is a painting to add a touch of European warmth and charm to your home...
