Sunflowers Everywhere,oils,canvas,Barbara Haviland-Texas Floral Artist


SUNFLOWERS EVERYWHERE

© Barbara Haviland-Texas Floral Artist
© Barbara Haviland-Texas Floral Artist
Sunflowers are a pretty happy flower, at least to me they seem  happy.  I like seeing them growing and swaying the the breeze.  This painting was done in oils and measures 10" x 20". It is signed and framed for you.  The background is a very dark green.
The sunflower (Helianthus annuus) is an living annual plant in the family Asteraceae, with a large flower head (capitulum). The stem of the flower can grow up to 3 metres tall, with a flower head that can be 30 cm wide. Other types of sunflowers include the California Royal Sunflower, which has a burgundy (red + purple) flower head.
The flower head is actually an inflorescence made of hundreds or thousands of tiny flowers called florets. The central florets look like the centre of a normal flower, and the outer florets look like yellow petals. All together they make up a "false flower" or pseudanthium. The benefit to the plant is that it is very easily seen by the insects and birds which pollinate it, and it produces thousands of seeds

Fascinating Formation, New Contemporary Landscape Painting by Sheri Jones

Fascinating Formation9x12 oil on wood panel

This dramatic sky was screaming paint me, paint me. I find the abstract shapes of the clouds an endless source of inspiration.  I created this on a smooth wood surface, which seemed to soak up the paint. This has many layers of color painted applied with a palette knife. To purchase see  http://www.sherijonesart.com Sheri@sherijonesart.com http://www.sheriart.blogspot.com. Thank you for viewing my art. Sheri Jones

New Tuscany Palette Knife Painting by Texas Artist Niki Gulley

"Cypress Shadows," Tuscany ©2018 Niki Gulley 
SOLD • 9" x 12" textured oil painting

Just Sold! I painted "Cypress Shadows" from the villa we stay in when my husband and I are teaching our Plein Air Painting and Photography Workshop in Tuscany. The late afternoon light was so beautiful how it cast its golden glow on the landscape and stone farmhouse, and I had to capture it before it was gone. Long deep shadows from the surrounding cypress trees draw your eye into the composition and set a peaceful mood of the approaching evening. I hope you enjoy the escape to beautiful Tuscany, too, when you gaze at my painting!

SO, WHAT'S THE SUBJECT?

It was the compositional potential of this scene that first made me want to paint it. Kind of unusual as a more intimate landscape subject. For me it's about the shapes and color harmony, My eyes are always on what's happening here in the Texas hill country

Blue Front Moving in, New Contemporary Landscape Painting by Sheri Jones

Blue Front Moving In
9x12 oil on canvas

The moment I saw this cloud formation, I knew I would attempt to paint it. The back lit clouds were a challenge to interpret. I used a phthalo blue and ultramarine blue to capture the moody blue morning. I don't think I finished with this color combination. I just love it.

A Pasture of Cows is one of many that I have planned this new year. I find I do like to paint animals.  The piece is done in oils and is signed and framed.
Does anyone know how I can change the date on my camera??
