I've always loved painting sunflowers and they seem particularly conducive to palette knife painting. This one has lots of nice juicy texture. As a suggestion to any oil painters out there, palette knife painting helps separate us from photographers even more because of the texture we can create. Lots of fun!!!
Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We had 10 guests so it was a lot of work, but fortunately everything came off very well. My son deep fries the turkey and it was yummy! We were supposed to have rain, but we got lucky and it waited until early this morning.

My painting of the horses is from a Challenge offered by Lee Brown Photography and I have to thank him for offering up such a lovely photo to work from. I basically used the photo with a few changes to the background (left out the fence) and I changed the horses legs slightly. I owned horses for most of my life and painted them a lot during one period. They remain a true love for me and painting them is a a treat! For a time we had a large area of our property in green pasture and it always did my heart good to see the horses out there grazing. This scene is idyllic.
Thanks for taking the time to look at my blog!
