"Sunflower on Sunday" -Sold


Last night, Randy and I went shopping at the grocery store Kroger, for a few things. I wandered over to the flower department. I couldn't believe it, I found a couple sunflowers, woo hoo!

This is an experimental piece. I really like the technique that Joni T. Johnson used to do her work. I got to see a few pieces in person when I worked at the frame shop. I just fell in love with them. There is something about her work that intrigues me. Her technique, the poems, the images?

I didn't have exactly the right tools, I have been painting in oil and this is my first attempt with watercolor since when? Grade school? This is watercolor, ink, pencil and water-soluble crayons on a watercolor paper block. Did I say salt? I tried salt!
