This week's Floral Friday includes sunflowers again. A favorite this time of year here in New Jersey. These flowers were in a Bennington Pottery vase on the table during my Open Studio Sale last Sunday and challenged me to find a way to include the lively arrangement in a smaller size. The paintings in this series are intended to make lovely gifts instead of live flowers from the florist.....leaving a much more permanent impression on the receiver. So far, it seems to be working, as all but two have sold. The painting will be matted with a white archival mat board, backed with archival backing and shipped in a protective acetate sleeve.
