New Mexico Sunflowers



New Mexico Sunflowers

These colors are not made up - this house is painted  in colors
exactly like this and the yellow sunflowers vibrate next to them.

you are still the land of the free and home of the brave.

  1. What a beautiful painting--those flowers look so fresh and that building is a gorgeous color. Small wonder that it is sold! A buyer with great taste.

  2. Crazy color on that house, but on the other hand, it gives you the chance to paint this symphony of colors. Is there anything more summer like than this painting?

    1. I blinked a few times when I first saw the house. It was the purple. We get lots of blues but the purple was a bonus touch.
      Love your nest/eggs painting.

  3. The colors work well together. The linear lines of the house help to balance out the chaos of the sunflowers. Beautiful painting!!

  4. How beautiful!!! Julie, you've never painted a piece that I haven't loved. Your taste and sense of composition are unbeatable. And thank you so much for getting my wry sense of humor. I think it must come off as being depressed or sad or complaining. Often it is just self-deprecating humor. LOL

    1. We have a great guest room just waiting for you Rita.
      Sunflowers are cheerful but even so they are not my favorite flower. I love the freesia and calla lilies.

    1. I am waiting to see blue shutters in a Lisa painting. There have to be some in that imagination of yours.
      You just did a smashing painting with a window and curtain... so go outside that room and what do you see?
