Bistro Bouquet, 12x16

"Bistro Bouquet" 12x16, oil on Claussens linen panel

I bought a couple bunches of sunflowers and roses the other day, so that I could paint from life. I noticed today that the flowers were drooping a bit so I decided to paint another still life with them, while they still had good energy in them. In yesterday's still life, (which I titled "Bellissima World"), I utilized the white ceramic pitcher that you see in this picture:

Today I decided to substitute the ceramic white pitcher with something blue and so "Bistro Bouquet" was the result. I painted this with just a palette knife, no brush, so I used a lot more paint. There's great impasto in both pieces, however.

I've decided not sell this one at this point in time, but rather save it for a show or gallery show.
