Sunflower Symmetry

Sunflower Symmetry by Nancy Medina


What a busy week in the studio! It looks like a sunflower factory exploded in here. Sunflower Symmetry was painted at the end of a marathon painting session yesterday based upon the fresh daisies and sunflowers I bought at the grocery store. Though I do work from my own photography on the computer screen, I also keep fresh flowers in the studio for most of my artwork projects. I've shared a picture below of Sunflower Symmetry in front of the fresh flowers that inspired them.

And as promised, my four-foot wide flower panorama is here for you, too. It is almost fini! I have painted one corner with a blue-gray background and one corner with a yellow white background. My client will be able to select the background color she likes best. After that I will lay in more lilac and greenery, a few more flowers, and prepare it for shipping to Montreal. What a fun project this has been. I promise to show you the finished painting when it is done.

bouquet of flowers that inspired it.

My painting commission is almost fini!

Beautiful! The blue background compliments the sunflowers perfectly.

Is it hot enough down there for you?

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Oh my gosh
there are no words to describe how beautiful this is.
There is a feeling that comes over me when my eyes gaze at this sunflower..... I just want to keep looking and looking and looking.
I don't want to leave the presence of this beauty.,,,,,
this is awsomely gorgeous.

Just a huge explosion of flowers indeed! Oh how glorious! Both pieces you've shared are truly beautiful and breathtaking, Nancy. I find that to always be the case with your gorgeous pieces!

Beautiful! Gorgeous! I wonder where the lady will be hanging your masterpiece? Sunflowers just make me feel so good all over!

Sunflowers always make me smile...I love yours!

Thank you Sharon, yes, hmm-hmm! it is definitely hot enough - can you please send some of your ocean breezes this way? : )

Thank you TweedleyGirl! you are such a sweetheart. I met a lot of little pugs today, including a little female who reminded me of you.

Sherry oh yes, you could say my studio looks like an explosion occurred in here. I think it's time for a late summer cleaning. : )

Thank you Becky!! she is going to hang it in her dining room, I think, over a large piece of furniture, if I remember correctly.

Thank you so much Trudy, I appreciate that! : )
