"Flower Cart""

 "Flower Cart"
oil, 8x10"

It was a really hot day when I went to visit my mom, as we sat on
the patio chatting I noticed her beautiful old flower cart, the light was intense and
the shadows were so strong. "Mom, I said, "what a really neat painting that would
make. I didn't have my paints with me, they were at home two states
away. So I took some pictures of it. Not sure how old this cart is,
it looks pretty aged but that is what makes it so special.

I painted these sunflowers from life and they were a treat to
paint. The glowing yellow of these flowers are so intense 
and so beautiful. The oranges that you find in shadow
harmonize with the yellow. No wonder so many artist love 
to paint sunflowers.

Oil, 9x4"
Frame 9 3/4 x 4 3/4" 
Handle to handle 11"

I painted the flowers from life and decided to just add the flowers without 
the pots to go with this antique frame that I purchased from an antique 
show. Not sure how old the frame is, I am guessing late 1800's to early 
1900's. I collect antique frames and it is hard to part with them. I admire the
professional craftsmanship that went into them. I purchase new or old frames
from all over the country, I just love frames and how they complement
the painting. I will search high and low for 
that perfect frame.

Painted from life but it was a good thing that I painted the flowers that day
because the next day they had moved a lot. Not real fun when they move, have
to remember what they looked like, start over, or take a picture before they move.
