Red Sunflowers

30” x 24”
Oil on Canvas

Collection of the Athwal Family,
Thoms River NJ

Comments: The Athwals were moving into their lovely new home and needed a painting for a niche over the fireplace.  They sent me the size requirements and colors and told me to go wild.  I did, and so did they!  They loved it.  I spent many days going around Seattle looking for just the right shade of red sunflower.  I finally knocked on a door and asked the owner of a garden if I could buy their sunflowers.  I placed them in my studio window and painted fast before they wilted.
