Sugar & Spice

Watercolor & gouache

Still lifes are my main subject matter and this one was inspired by my daughter-in-law’s photo. I love the casualness and placement of these objects — the Oregon sunflowers sit on the countertop, along with the mugs and bag of sugar. It adds interest and the colors are bright and cheery.┬áIt feels just like you walk into her kitchen and find the items there, ready to paint. I like the relationships and connections between the items. The primary color triad appeals to me also: the yellow sunflowers, red zinnias and blue mugs. The colors sing and they are fresh and inviting. These are inspirational pictures in which I have painted other still lifes.
