Wild Things - Sunflower Fields and Dallas Arboretum Blossoms

Wild Things is the newest sunflower painting in a studio filled with sunflower paintings, but the first time I have ever painted a field of sunflowers. I've had requests for years to do a vista of these favorite blossoms. Growing up in Texas, the highway department plants sunflowers as a weed control alternative, so you see them for hundreds of miles along the byways. What a gift to have something given so casually cause so much simple pleasure and delight.

This is the last new painting I will prepare for my Dallas Arboretum Artscape show March 18-20. You are invited to join me in Booth 54 in the gardens from 9 am to 5 pm each day. The tulips will be in full bloom, so I hope you will be there for a fun day among the most glorious blossoms in North Texas.

Oh I do love this one, Nancy. I once saw a movie in which the ranch/farm owner grew sunflowers as his crop. It was so glorious to see them like that! This is a beautiful place to have a picnic!
