In keeping with my promise, I gifted the painting to a dear friend. Sunflowers are for friendship. Sunflowers are for happiness. And Sunflowers are for God.
I have since decided that God wants me to paint whatever day it may be. It has become my form of worship and expression of gratitude. What better way to honor Creation than multiplying it and sharing it?!
Inspired by classical impressionist, this original painting rendered in oil pastels will bring out the summer sunshine in your soul. I don't use oil pastels often, but occasionally I my muse get an itch that only the unique texture of pastel can satisfy. The image of the translucent vase and it's cargo of yellow petals is sure to delight any friend you gift it too. Consider treating yourself to a splash of summer colour!
Bring this happy bouquet into your home, so you too can remember the sunshine in your life. ~Tali
"I am following Nature without being able to grasp her... I perhaps owe having become a painter to flowers. " - Claude Monet
"I'm now painting with all the elan of a Marseillais eating soup, which won't surprise you when I tell you I'm painting large sunflowers." -artist Vincent Van Gogh
