Artist Comments:

I love flowers! I like painting them too, especially closeup and bathed in the warm sunlight. I’m always on the look out for a beautiful flower to paint and the King Protea is certainly one that inspires me.

About King Proteas

The King Protea (pronounced “prō – dē – a”) became the national flower of South Africa in 1976. This plant, named after Proteus, a Greek god who could change his form at will, is one of the oldest flowering plants on earth dating back 300 million years. There are many varieties of protea, which can be found in South Africa, Australia, Asia and parts of South America.

King Proteas, who’s blossom resembles an artichoke, are the largest member of the protea family. They can grow as large as 3-4 feet tall with flowers 8-10 inches in diameter. The blossom has a huge white fuzzy center with pointy pink or white petals surrounding the center, along with leathery green petals that cradle the large heavy blossom and a thick stem which supports it.

Artist Comments

This little painting was a fun one to do. I like doing small paintings like this one as it allows me to work on several art pieces in the same painting session. Often times you will find me working on a large size canvas and also have several small or mini paintings like this one going at the same time.

Artist Comments

I love all flowers, however, one of my favorites the sunflower. I love the bright sunshine yellow petals and huge blossoms that resemble the sun. Most paintings of sunflowers are composed from the front of the blossom, however, the back side of some flowers can be just as interesting and the sunflower is a good example of one.

Some Interesting Things About Sunflowers

    • The sunflower is a plant that is native to North America. Later it was introduced to Mexico and Peru. They can grow up to 6 feet tall and prefer dry, sunny places where their roots can dig deep into the soil.
    • When the plant is in the bud stage, it will face the sun following its movement across the sky from horizon to horizon. This movement allows it to get the maximum amount of the sun’s rays. Once the flower is fully opened into the radiance of yellow petals, it faces east only. It is not known why it does this. One theory is it is possibly a defensive response to prevent the sun from scalding the seed pod during hot summer days.
    • The sunflower is often equated as a symbol of spiritual faith, worship, adoration, loyalty and longevity. Perhaps because it is always seeking the “Light”.

Artist Comments

love all flowers, especially roses. This close-up oil painting of a rose was done shortly after we moved back home to Texas when my husband Robert retired from the military after 24 years of serving in the U.S. Navy. There is an old folk song that kept coming to mind called “Yellow Rose of Texas”, so I knew I just had to do an oil painting of a yellow rose. I decided to do a close-up composition because of a fellow artist who’s paintings I admire.

Inspired by Georgia O’Keeffe flower paintings, I wanted to use the same treatment as she when I painted my own series of flowers. Ms. O’Keeffe like to paint her flowers enlarged by zooming in and really focusing on the flower blossom or petals in many of her paintings. I really admire much of her floral art and accomplishments as an American female artist.

To my knowledge, O’Keeffe never did paintings of roses. Instead her favorite flower to paint seems to have been the Jimson Weed since she painted quite a few of those flowers during her lifetime. I’ve painted several roses, a sunflower and a magnolia blossom using this enlarged flower technique. I’m positive there will be more flower paintings like this one in the future.

For more information on Georgia O’Keeffe and her flower paintings.
