Petals Afire Sunflower is a small work that was finished using the palette knife. I worked exclusively in palette knife for 2 years in an attempt to loosen up a very tight painting style. I paint mainly with the brush now, but I still love that texture you get with a knife. If you've never tried it, I encourage you to dab a bit of fat paint using your knife at the end of a painting with your brightest highlights. You might just like it!

This has such a deep and beautiful richness, Nancy! I find myself wanting to just curl up in the center of that sunflower and sleep through the ages!
