Missouri Sunflowers

Missouri Sunflowers
Oil on panel, 12x9
Purchase Information
This month, I will be participating in the Sunflower Festival in DeSoto, Kansas.  The kick-off is a plein air event at the Kill Creek Farm - which is full of history and sunflowers!  Growing up in Kansas, this is the official state flower - and a challenge to capture!  Today, I am using oils - and pushing the color a bit.  The "cads" are having their way with this piece - it is full of cad yellow light, lemon, medium yellow, orange, red and green!  All cads!  The only one that is not a cad in this painting - prussian blue.  This colorful painting is Day 2 of the 30 Day Painting Challenge and my 610th painting in 610 days.
