SOLD • 30″ x 48″ textured mixed media painting on wrap around canvas

Just Sold! Sun Salutations is inspired from one of the amazing locations we take our students to on our Provence Art Trek. We actually set up our easels in this gorgeous lavender and sunflower field, where the flowers seem to stretch forever and the color and aroma explosion are out of this world! Back in my studio, I worked from a combination of photos, on-site sketches and memories. Painting the sunflowers full-sized in the foreground helps to bring them to life and hopefully transport you to this beautiful location. Contrasting the complimentary colored lavender field in the distance draws your eye to the focal point, while repeating surprising pops of vivid color keeps your eye moving throughout the scene and adds to the joyful feeling. 

If you’d like more information or a brochure on one of our upcoming Plein Air Painting and Photography Workshops, please let me know. This year’s upcoming Art Trek to Spain is full, but we are taking reservations for the following year to Tuscany, England and Ireland.
