Sunflowers Oil Painting flower art claire harrison art

Fading Blooms



Oil on Board, 120 x 70 cms, 47 x 27.5 inches


This painting is all about the twisting forms the petals create as Sunflowers die.

The painting shows three Sunflowers in the different stages of life, from a bud just opening to the fully open to the bloom that is fully over, and its petals hang forward.

The colours are inspired by an article I read about the insects that see plants in UV light, turning the sepals turquoise and the petals pinky magenta.

The Fading Bloom series is not about the sadness of a dying flower but the hope that it gives because dying flowers form seeds, and seeds create new plants and new life.
