Sunny Yellow Sunflower Miniature Oil Painting

ART. Sunflower Mini, oil on cradled wood, 6x6 inches.... Click here to view an earlier sunflower image. This painting was commissioned by a young wife whose husband is military and about to be deployed overseas. I have painted this sunflower completely with a palette knife to achieve lots of texture. There was no drawing for this one. I began by painting tonal shapes on the support which, in this case, is a cradled wood panel with natural birch sides. Now my muse is saying, "Paint more sunflowers."
