Two Sunflowers | bring the summer fun inside

Long months of Minnesota winter, means lots of time working in the studio. For the summer months, I take my studio on the road. Armed with my pochade box, I head out to experience painting in nature.

The glory days of summer…

Now I’m not saying that I’m ready for another Minnesota winter, but even during the glory days of summer, I can miss the quiet simplicity and convenience of working on a simple still life in my studio.

Nothing livens up my studio like a pair of sunflowers and the warm colors of summer to go with them. This painting was an opportunity to bring some of the summer fun inside.
