Sunflowers on the Easel

This is my current oil painting in progress, and this is the corner I use as an art studio for now. Unless painting a huge canvas, I can work in a small space.

The sunflowers in the reference photo were some I bought last winter and arranged in a Finnish vase on the dining table. The tablecloth and blue napkin were bought in Arles, France. After I saw the fields of beautiful sunflowers covering the French countryside, I understood why Van Gogh painted sunflowers. How could he not?
