Just Because

I’ve started work on a new Sunflowers, after Van Gogh. I know it’s an image I’ve recreated many times but I never tire of it. There are several reasons for making another one:

  1. I recently gave the wrong measurements for a frame I ordered – so had to have a base made to match, which happens to be exactly the right dimensions for Sunflowers!
  2. I’ve not made one for a while so have gathered lots of materials in appropriate colours.
  3. I love making them and, after a few commissions, am happy to be making something just because I want to!

Van Gogh painted his Sunflowers 17 times so I’m in good company!

    Hello there! I am responding to that incredibly gorgeous Santa Claus you made in 2010! I have always loved Santas and have painted a few in my time, but your ‘version’ is far and away the best I’ve ever seen…I saw where you used to sell cards with him on them. Did you sell any this year, and if so, do you have any left? Also, YOU should seriously think about having prints made for people like me to hang on walls. I have a dear friend who created a masterpiece using fluid acrylics and we convinced her to have prints made. Well worth the price. Thank you for posting him and I hope to hear from you! Happy 2022!!! V/R, Vonn Thomas

      Hi Vonn
      Thanks for your kind words about Father Christmas. I did have a few cards made but they’ve all gone now. I’ll probably make some more next year but please contact me in September/October! Happy 2022 to you too!
