Happy New Year! Over this past weekend I finally broke my painting 'fast'! It's not that I haven't been busy in the studio, though... it is now completely cleaned up and reorganized in preparation for a very busy 2009.

This first offering for the new year is a double show entrant. It is physically up for show and sale at the Middle Georgia Art Association's juried show, "Sunflowers". The show runs Jan.16th through Feb.13th and is a really bright spot in the dead of winter.
UPDATE: This painting won Honorable Mention!

You will also find it on-line in the "Flower of the Month" show at EBSQ as the state flower of Kansas.

I opted to mount the floating panels with velcro on a separate panel of blue so that each one could be detached and hung individually if desired. Presently they are framed in an antiqued alizarin crimson frame that coordinates with the sunflower centers.
