SOLD • 16″ x 20″ textured oil painting on 3/4″ wrap around canvas 

with the painting continuing around the edges

Just Sold! This sunflower field that I visited in the middle of the pandemic was GORGEOUS. It felt like it stretched for miles. Bright, happy faces sharing their smiles with us and lifting our spirits. My heart literally swelled and I had to capture all of that joy on canvas.  Utilizing vivid, uplifting hues, thick paint and bold, loose strokes add to the happy, carefree feeling of the moment and I hope you are transported there with me.

36″ x 36″ textured oil painting on wrap around canvas

 I wanted this piece to be uplifting and full of color and energy. The sun rises on the horizon, casting its beautiful glow across golden petals while perky, circular faces smile back at you. Magical light dances through the morning field, bringing sunshine and hope for the day to come.

I’m excited to have been invited to exhibit amongst the talented artists at Marigold Arts gallery in Santa Fe, NM! “Sun’s Glory” and several of my Southwest landscapes will be hanging there, so if you are in the area, please stop in and visit or check them out online,

“Sun Drenched” textured sunflower oil painting

30″ x 48″ textured oil on canvas

Inspired by our trip to Provence last summer, I was awestruck by these massive fields of sunflowers blooming. Seeing this brilliant carpet of gold, with its sea of faces smiling towards the sun, just made me feel happy and I wanted you to experience that joy, too. In person “Sun Drenched” practically leaps off the canvas with its vibrant yellow petals and extremely thick three-dimensional oil paint.
