"SUNFLOWER" MIXED MEDIA 5X5 FLORAL PAINTING © SAUNDRA LANE GALLOWAY

"Sunflower"
5x5" mixed media on gallery wrap canvas
ON HOLD FOR A SHOW

This sunflower is painted over a good layer of flexible molding paste.  I love the texture it brings, but there was a practical reason I did this.  I have been having trouble with stretched canvas buckling a bit at the corners.  It probably doesn't bother anyone because it is so slight...but I hate it!...SO, I put a layer of paste over it and voila it takes the problem away!...I only wish I'd thought of it earlier.
I buy my canvas mostly at Meiningers ( a huge, prestigious art store)...so, I think on my next visit I'm going to have a chat with them about their certain brands of canvas! THERE, I've gotten this off my chest!

I tried taking this pic in several lights and you can't really see the purplish hue that is the background...it comes out mostly blue...sorry...still not the grand photographer!

This will be number 2 to be entered in a miniature show at the Foothills Art Center in Golden, Colorado this September....My next you ask??...a Pinion Pine Cone...:)

HAPPY CREATING!

It turned out great Saundra. Thanks for the kind offer to use your pic of sunflower. I have actually attempted it but so far I'm not happy with the results. I realize they are harder to paint than I thought. You are so good at it. I need more practice.

Thanks Jean...to me, painting sunflowers is always a gamble...I sort of feel a little out of control in process...:)

Mon regard se tourne tel ton tournesol sur ta publication. Je comprends ta rage concernant la qualité de ta toile... Je suis très exigeante aussi.
Très joli tournesol qui me remplit de lumière aujourd'hui.
gros bisous

So very beautiful, Saundra!! I can see a sort of lilac color on my monitor, very faint and oh so pretty with the purple papers. Such a fresh and joy filled piece!

Je suis si content que je pourrais faire vous sourire Martinealison ! Je continuerai à chercher le canevas juste. ..until alors j'ajoute la texture ; que j'aime de toute façon ! Etreintes !

Thank you Autumn Leaves...I'm glad the purple comes through a bit!
