SKETCHBOOK: "Sunflower's Second Chance"

I've been growing giant sunflowers in my yard this summer. I've never tried that before. This was the first of the flowers to bloom. But apparently, it got too heavy and bent over, choking itself off from the main stem. So today I decided to use it as a model on my kitchen table.

Here are some of my most recent paintings that were done in 2015 and beyond. I took a break from painting for five and a half years after my wife died. My daughter, Jenni, helped me to start painting again, for which I am grateful.

Below are paintings done in 2010 and before.


I wanted to make it a little easier for you to see some of my favorite sketches. I've posted hundreds of drawings on this blog over the years.  Feel free to look at the "Sketchbook" label if you want to read a more in-depth commentary on all of them.
