Sunflowers, Summer Lightning

Topics: color, flowers, inspiration

Sunflowers, white with negative space in black ink, stand out as if lit in an inky night by a bolt of lightning. Contrast and a certain eeriness result from squiggles of red acrylic and splashes of gold. 5" by 7" image in 11" by 14" mat.

I wrote about developing this piece from a misadventure in creating an archival reproduction of a conventional floral painting. I quite like the drama of the final result here.
