Sunflowers              oil on board        8" x 11"  

This is from a wonderful field of  sunflowers just over the WA/ID border in Deer Park. I used a different surface for this one when I grabbed a gesso'd MDF board and began these sunflowers in color patches. This is a board with a routered border, so it has an edge, like a frame that is cut into it and stained deep umber. That makes it easy to set on the easel it comes with, hang 'as is' or frame separately. With a whole field of color, you hardly know where to look first, so I focused on a few with the bright, light yellow they are known for. Pictures of the painting and board edge are below.
