Basket of Sunnies

Size: 11 x 14 inches

oil on stretched canvas


Bicycle painting. A vintage green bike rests on its kickstand with a front basketful of sunflowers.  The bicycle shaped shadow under the bike shows that it’s around noon on a sunny day.  There’s a bench and bucket in the background.  This painting was painted en plein air in Stillwater, Minnesota right outside of the corner General Store (which is now out of business).  The highly textured areas were painted with a palette knife.
