Bev, a lovely lady who takes oil classes from me on Monday brought these beautiful sunflowers to class. So, all day long we painted merrily away; painting of course the front of the flower. Everyone did a great job, and their paintings turned out beautiful. As everyone was cleaning brushes and preparing to leave, I noticed how beautiful Bev's sunflowers were, seeming to just recline on the table. The leafy backside, the part that usually doesn't get much of my attention, seemed to be beckoning me to paint it. So here they are, the gorgeous, swirling, twirling, leafy, flip side of the flower.  I decided against adding shadows that they cast on the table, deciding to instead depict them as they might look growing in the garden, soaking up the autumn sun. I loved painting these, thanks for bringing them to class Bev!

About This Painting:
Media: oil
Size: 12 in X 12 in (30.5 cm X 30.5 cm)
How to Purchase:
This is "County H" near Lac du Flambeau, Wisconsin. I recently took a workshop at Dillman's, and the road we usually take was closed. This road was the detour, and it was truly spectacular, little inlets, good reflections, and the trees just beginning to turn. The title is after a song by Bob Seeger...

This is one of the paintings that will be hanging in my new space, opening September 5th at 6pm. If you are in the Cincinnati area, please stop by for a class schedule, and a glass of wine. New paintings will be hanging for you to view. 209 S West Street, Mason, Ohio. I'm excited about this new venture, and look forward to teaching art.

I was fortunate to find this purple canning jar made by a company in Toledo, Ohio. Never knew they came in purple, but I thought it would make a colorful painting. I just picked whatever was blooming in the yard. Seems like it was a shorter than usual summer but then, I probably say that every year :) 

This painting is framed so if you are interested in purchasing it, please contact me at lindamccoyart@live.com

I saw these ducks this spring at Voice of America Park. It was a warm morning, not a cloud in the sky. The mama duck allowed me to approach, but she kept her eye on me. I was able to take enough pictures to paint them, the little ones were frolicking in the water, just having fun as babes do.
This is a very low resolution image of this piece. If you are interested in purchasing it email me for a high res image.
