I hope you are having a joyous and restful season. This is a very non-seasonal blog probably because as the snow drifts down here I am thinking about summer.
Sometimes I like a study so much that I decide to paint it larger and that was the case for Ah! Sun-Flower but in addition to increased size I decided to do it in oil paints. This is the year that I will commit myself to painting more in oils, I decided a few months ago but when I got started I thought to myself I'd just better commit myself. Not to oils, either. Getting the hang of a different medium isn't always fun but it did becomes increasingly more enjoyable until I couldn't wait to jump out of bed to do some more work on it. This is the big version of what I had done before and called it 'Ah! Sun-Flower' after a poem by William Blake. Prior to this I had rashes and wheezing when working with oil and my lips and tongue would go numb but I've tried it again and those symptoms have disappeared. This was so much fun and I want to share it with you.
