Featured Artwork

"Up Close"

I've always loved sunflowers and when I saw this one while in Cape Cod for a wedding, I knew I had to draw it. I eliminated the distracting background from my reference photos, instead choosing a simple pale blue to keep the focus on the flower. The biggest challenge was the incredibly detailed seed pattern in the center and the tiny individual blossoms surrounding it. When you take the time to look closely, you realize the amazing symmetry and patterns found in nature. I created the entire flower in a previous work, but decided I wanted to try a different crop to give the image more drama.
