yellow, floral, sunflower, stilllife, gouache

Buy it, I’m already well into my 60’s and if I’m going to be famous, well, I’m running out of time. I like to think my work has been influenced by the great impressionists, although my wife says it’s because I won’t go and get my eyes checked. At any rate, I do love to paint watercolour and acrylics and it’s a true wish of mine that you enjoy viewing my work. Go ahead and let me know what you think, I love to read your comments. (Well….the good ones anyway.)

    Definitely a beautiful effect with the gouache colors. I should myself use them more often…
    (it makes me think of Van Gogh and his sun flowers with the blue vase – and as it is one of my favourite artist I love this ! – )

  • I can handle being compared to Van Gogh. LOL That’s really a sweet comment Corinne, thank you. PS – He’s my favorite too!
