Finished Sunflower oil painting for the freshly painted kitchen


So as you all know, I have been working on my kitchen. I painted the bottom cupboards,
and painted the walls. Well then I needed to redecorate, and that meant I needed
a new painting for the kitchen.
So I woke up early this morning and started drawing out a painting
before the kids had even left for school.

It was raining AGAIN! That is when I decided I wanted SUNFLOWERS for my kitchen.

I laid down my thinned down oil paint for my impasto painting. Once I got that down
I could start painting.

Stuff and Nonsense
once I had my first layer down I could start my IMPASTO layer. I wanted
my background to be more blue, so this is where I got to put my blues down.

Now I get to have SUN all the time!  I have to be careful to not show too much of the kitchen, since
I am doing the reveal next week. :)

I hope you enjoyed a little walk through my oil painting and I hope
it makes you feel sunny and warm too.
Have a  BEAUTIFUL night.

I am constantly inspired by you! Awesome job! I am going to try my hand at painting some more this summer, so thank you for the walk through to your finished painting...I sometimes get overwhelmed with were to start. And....if you are painting something for your own house, do you like to paint in the room that it will go in?? {I see you started there in the kitchen, such a good idea!}
