Hi, I'm artist Jennifer Beaudet, from Southern California, USA. I started this blog in 2009 as a way to share my art journey and meet other creative souls. It became my therapy. I use oil and acrylics, and paint with rich colors and bold brush strokes. My work is both, passionate and sensitive. Inspired by nature's beauty. My blog is BeaudetArt and I first called it My Life As a Starving Artist. I have since changed it a few times. J Beaudet Studios
My inspiration for this painting was the weekly challenge on Daily Paintworks! I was a day late but at least I did it. I've done a few smaller sunflower paintings but never one this large. I tried to keep the colors dark so that the sunflowers could be the star of the show! With all that sunshine yellow there's no need for any other saturated color, with the exception of the touches of the magenta "flowers" that I added in the end. But even the magenta is not pure.
Fourth of July has come and gone so quickly. Now it's on to my birthday! Time really needs to slow down! Summer is my favorite season and it seems so short. In honor of my favorite month I'm having a Christmas in July Sale in my Etsy shop! The sale goes from July 11th-21st and I'm offering 10% off anything in my shop. Mark your calendars!
Time flies and the next thing you know it'll be Christmas time again!
