Sometimes, you think you've finished a painting only to have that nagging doubt in the back of your head. So you make a few decisions. Scary right? Needs more lights, stronger interest point maybe? Back to the easel for a touch up? It's a bit like life, the decision is yours right or wrong it has to be something that makes you happy, no one else. That said, I better look at this one other and see what makes me happy. Maybe I'll share this painting with you again and see what you think. Well of course I still want your comments, please send them, I'm waiting.

Two things I love here. Sunflowers and farms. Sunflowers are beautiful, I enjoy munching on the seeds and also to have them sprinkled on a salad. Farms, well I can say they have always been a fascination with all the equipment and animals. You may as well throw in the open, expansive landscape which captures my heart and paintbrush.
Many who look at this description, dismiss it and think only the number of houses or condos that will fit in this space. It makes me very sad to see these wonderful properties disappearing. This could be one of the reasons I love to paint landscapes, my way of preserving. So, pay attention to the landscape and enjoy it, next time you pass, you might see a pile of bricks! Sunflowers don't grow on bricks very well.
