warm

Lovely October days make you happy to feel the warmth of the sun and to see the red and gold colors. This is a plus factor about living in the Northern Illinois area.
I am painting a series for my big show in December. Lots of sunflowers, which I will show as I finish.
And this is a detail from a very warm tone painting of a hibiscus flower. I didn't get a photo of the whole thing, but I like this snippet of the texture and edges.

Even as a section, this flower really works. I love your sense of design and how you design the shapes and work the negative space.
