Sunflowers and Vintage Watering Cans

> Welcome. I am so glad that you stopped by. My garden gate is always open for you to come in and sit and relax while I share with you inspirations for my paintings. Would you like to join me for a cup of tea and a piece of banana bread? I just got back from the Farmers Market - the morning is cool and I bought more Sunflowers. I just can't resist painting them and I hope you are not getting tired of seeing their cheerful faces in my art.


I am painting something for a special lady who lives in a cottage near the ocean. She loves Sunflowers, vintage watering cans and the sea. Let's go join my Studio Assistant, Bentley, in the garden to look for watering can inspirations.



Looks like Bentley already found a blue watering can. Let's keep looking for a red one.



My neighbors Sunflowers are peeking over the fence.









Finding inspiration . . . . .

Everywhere . . . . .






Looks like we found the perfect old red vintage watering can for my painting.



Here is the finished painting. I added a bucket of Sunflowers with red Roses and white Daisy's for a pop of color and contrast. Painted sea shells to give the painting a "Seaside Cottage Garden" feel.





I am so happy that you stopped by. I love hearing from you and sincerely appreciate your visits, comments and those wonderful Blogger Friends who follow my blog. Please let me know if you have any questions or would like to see me paint something special. I have requests to paint pink roses and bird houses in future posts.

Have a lovely week. Blessings, Erin
