Black-eyed Susan

4×4″ oil on stretched canvas; available through artist.

A close look at a field flower on a small canvas… that is the experiment here. The deep yellow oranges of this flower make it a complement to any bouquet. I have seen other painters do well with the black calligraphic line to finish off a work; I was also trying that, but so far, I think, I haven’t mastered an appealing or additional flourish yet. No matter; the next attempt awaits.
