Sunflowers fresh from the fields and perfectly displayed in a “big ol’ white pot”. Wonderfully country, whimsical, and old-fashioned all at the same time. Imagine sitting on the back porch of a cabin, feet propped on a milk can … ahem!… sun’s going down … bring in the sunflowers and dream of more lazy days of summer.

This pot was my grandmother’s. She used it to water her irises. Displaying sunflowers in the antique pot is reminiscent of days long gone, a little bit sad, a lot whimsical. I love this art piece – an acrylic painting on canvas. Bright and happy, yet nostalgic at the same time. Like Granny used to say: Everybody needs a big ol’ pot.

    HI Eloise, I am really new to this! I have just joined the Acrylics group & saw your beautiful sunflower painting. I just uploaded a sunflower painting today & my sunflowers are in a pot I inherited from my grandma!! I have also done one of some lilies in the same pot but in both cases I have used much artistic licence. The actual pot is heavily patterned in blue and gold.

  • Hi, Barbara.
    You will really enjoy the artists here at Red Bubble. This is my first year here too, and I am learning my way around as well . Thank you for your nice comment on my sunflowers and my grandmother’s pot. I am going to go look at your grandma’s pot in your paintings now!
