Sunflower Inspirations




Welcome.  I am so happy that you stopped by.  My garden gate is always open for you to come in and sit and relax with a cup of tea while I share with you the inspirations for my art. I love painting Sunflowers and they are one of my signature flowers to paint.  I have been organizing older photos of my paintings and came across this one that was one of my favorites and it inspired me to pick up a bunch of Sunflowers from the market to paint.





Let's join Bentley, my Studio Assistant, in the garden to look for inspiration for a new Sunflower painting.



                              Looks like Bentley is thinking about where to look for inspiration!










The Sunflower Garden vintage sign is one of my favorites and I like to move it around the garden.



I love the Sunflowers in the green vintage watering can and can see them in a simple
 little painting sitting on the red chair.



                     Yellow and purple are a lovely combination and I used them in the new painting.

                                                          The completed painting.




Thank you for stopping by.  I love hearing from you and sincerely appreciate your visits to my blog, comments, e-mails, and those who follow my blog. Thank you for your kind comments about my post on Isaiah House.  Please let me know if you have any questions or would like to see me paint something special.

Have a lovely week.   Blessings, Erin

I am in love with the green color of your watering can. My yellow can might just get a new paint job.

the painting is a hit Erin.
It amazed me how easily you find the right thing to paint and it amazed me that you can already purchase sunflowers at the flower market.

Your painting is fantastic, and Bentley adorable as always.
Thank you for leaving the gate open. There is so much beauty in your garden, and I wouldn't want to miss a thing.
