It has been some time since I have painted anything and so this morning I decided to start warming up for the Art for Air fundraiser that is being hosted by the Sussex Artist Co-op. All art work for this event will be 8"x8'x1 1/2" and can be of any medium and any subject. The proceeds will be donated to the local Fire Department and the purchase of a tree or 2 to replace the ones lost in a recent fire down town. Sunflowers are a favorite of mine. I like flowers and I love the freedom of the layering that I did on this piece. I haven't given up fabric but painting has help in the mixing of colours and deciding techniques for a piece I have on the design board now.
