I will need to take another photo of this painting... this one has some glare from the (dare I say) 'brighter' day. No, I didn't say sunny day, but the overcast day 'seemed' brighter... anyway, I will take a better shot of this sunflower painting in the morning.
The aqua blue/green background makes them pop off the canvas, giving this painting an almost 3D affect. Click on the photo for a close-up of the impasto sections... rich creamy oil paint passages. The paint was the texture of butter icing, and I almost wanted to lick the brush, but that would be very hazardous to my health, and too much like Van Gogh...
Here is my attempt at a Haiku Poem for this painting:
Yellow rippled frosting
dark chocolate centers
8x24 oil on gallery profile canvas
