In late August, nearby farms are resplendent with statuesque sunflowers. They are my favorite flowers to paint, and this one was so tall I knew it would end up in one of my paintings.

Tulips have such a strong, yet delicate form. They don’t grow well in Georgia, so I buy them from my local grocery store or paint the ones my husband so lovingly gifts to me.
This is one of my favorite vases: it has lovely scallops around the top, and graceful curves on the handle.
I bought it, from all places, on Ebay. One person’s trash is truly another’s treasure.

So painting is what I do while the men in my home are yelling at the television, rooting for UGA and the Atlanta Falcons.
This is the same setup as my Floral Still Life, without the apple and blue dish. I actually painted this one first, and love the triadic color scheme and use of violets, warm and cool.
