Moulin Rouge Sunflower, Acrylic on Gessoboard, 6"x6", $100
This painting totally says summer. Moulin Rouge is my favorite variety of sunflower just ahead of the big yellow ones with the brown centers, and the really shaggy Sole d'Oro sunflowers. I grow a big row of the Moulin Rouge sunflowers in my vegetable garden each year - I'm more likely to pick them for the house when they are in a row by the corn than when they're in the flower beds. As a bonus, I leave a lot of the volunteers that show up, so I end up with a great supply for cutting and painting and feeding the birds.

I am a painter living in Vermont. I've been painting for about 20 years learning as I go along. In the last couple of years I've been learning a bunch of new painting techniques and experimenting with new subject matter.
