Transcendence #1

As a change of pace I've been enjoying switching back and forth between realism and abstraction. I love the challenge of realism and then with abstraction, the fun of using different colors and materials. Incorporating metallic paints is something that works beautifully with abstraction but not with realism (at least for me).

Sunflower Pumpkin-SOLD

I started this painting at Dana Cooper's workshop on Lido Isle.  Came home and decided to make a few changes so went out and purchased my own pumpkin and a mini-sunflower plant.  Sunflowers are fun to paint (such happy flowers!) and it was fun working in the fall theme with the pumpkin (Dana's idea).  I worked on this image in PhotoShop, but really couldn't get it to be as beautiful as the original.
Sometimes I think the photos look better after using Photo shop and I have to tone them down, but couldn't seem to get the saturation and sparkle with this one.
