Late Blooms - A Sunflower Painting

It's raining here in Central Texas. The last painting I posted was of a foggy morning. I think a little ray of sun, a touch of warm yellow, is nice on a morning like this.

The painting "Stallions of St. Marks" which is in the photo to the left of Beppe is a painting I did for the Italian Club. I'm honored to have it featured there.

Promise Me You'll Write

I like rowboats. They are a little lonely all by themselves. It's a little cloudy outside today so the melancholic feeling of this painting just seemed right. As I was thinking of the title I was remembering long ago when, really long ago, when I was still a military brat and of friends who'd have to move when their family was transferred. Not much of a connection maybe except for being left alone.

"Promise Me You'll Write", original oil on canvas panel (Raymar), 6 x 6". Thank you for looking!
