This painting was done plein air near Messiah College in Pennsylvania. It had rained hard for several days before, and no matter how long we waited for the sun to draw the heads upward, it was not going to happen. I went back several weeks later to punch in the dark tree & underbrush on the right; the sunflowers' heads still were not at their grandest. However, I still liked the contrast of the dark tree with the yellow, rolling hills. And, who couldn't love that misty blue mountain in the background.
This painting is one of four of my paintings on exhibit with the SVPAP (Susquehanna Valley Plein Air Painters) group at Gallery 2318 in Camp Hill, PA. Exhibit will be open every weekend in October....Saturday, 10 am - 4 pm; Sunday, noon - 4 pm.
If in the area, please stop in. There are 21 artists displaying their plein air paintings..
