Sunflowers!! How gorgeous always so very appealing, beautifully and loosely expressed!

Nice painting Shirley!

Big and bold. Lovely Shirley

You can never have too many sunflower paintings Shirley May and I love these tall bold ones you have painted.

This is one of best sunflowers I have seen in my life! I love the contrast of cool and warm colour.

Thank you Thalia, Heather, Jim, Carole, Yoko, you are very kind. I was having a bit of a struggle of course!

So lovely Shirley they make a super painting subject.

Wow, very very impressive Shirley.

I really like the way you have painted these so loosely and captured their exuberance. There is a lot of movement in the painting. Well done Shirley!

Thanks Fiona, Alan, Chrissie. I'm doing a painting challenge tomorrow, so your comments help me!

Nothing lifts you more than sun flowers. What a beautiful painting particularly love the natural way they are portrayed.

Fabulous, Shirley! A lovely vibrant and loose feel to this!

Best painting of Sunflowers I have seen for ages - I keep coming back to look at it. Excellent Shirley.

Tank you Maureen, Gillian, Chandra, Shaun, for your very kind comments. I am having a lovely time with the gouache. You can do what you like with it!!

Well, Shirley - this is good: A marriage of Expressionism and Impressionism.

Hang on Studio Wall

Painting this morning with Rosie: some lovely sunflowers.
