Sunflowers in Purple Jar, 6x6 Inches, Oil

SOLD
This is my little purple jar again, with the 'swan song' little sunflowers from the garden.  I was interested in the reflections on the jar and in all the yellows in the flowers, and in the transition from cool to warm in the background.  The board that the jar is on is a foam board, which is holding up another still life set up (liquor bottles - see them next week), so it was a platform... see below:
(except, yikes, I had kicked the flood light and it swiveled away from the flowers...)

Wish me luck tomorrow night, at North River Art Society, with my Blogging Workshop  - I'm pretty excited about it!

  1. Love the colors on this one too. The flowers have such character, the petals look they all have separate personalities. Fun!

  2. Very nice, Kelley! The composition is very interesting, moving from left to right. The right sunflower is the star in all its glory! Love all the golds and yellows with the purple.

  3. Kelly these colors are great! Such a striking painting. I love your little purple jar. I'm a bit nuts when it comes to colored glass. I love the way light passes through it. Cool set up also. Looking forward to seeing the other side...

  6. Sunflowers, my favorite!! You're living on the edge with your set up:) At my house that would have bit the dust immediately, but I do think it's pretty ingenious!

  9. Beautiful, Kelley! I love these colors, too ... nice highlights on the flowers and I especially like the jar. Really like what you did with the background, too, that warm neutral over the blue ... great! :)
