Sunflowers and Puddles

I was inspired by the opportunity to paint flowers in conjunction with a landscape. I liked the challenge of painting the reflections in the puddles of water; it could easily have looked like a stream instead of a dirt road.

This is an acrylic painting sealed with a satin varnish. This is a one of a kind artwork. I always sign my work on the back and usually on the front as well

Joy Parks Coats’ Sunflowers and Puddles portrays a pastoral scene in masterful brushstrokes that beautifully captures the sun's radiance, flora, blue skies presiding over the vista and reflected in the brilliantly rendered puddles. From the rich yellows of the sunflowers to the still waters flooding the path, a lovely and emotions-provoking picture unfolds and brings the viewer back to days spent in the sun surrounded by brilliant green and oceans of flowers. You don't even need to have experienced such a scene to get the full emotional impact of the painting; it so perfectly captures an archetypal sense of blooming life and luscious summer days that even someone who has only known winter would relate to the work as one accustomed to sunflower strewn landscapes. Comforting, calming, and unobjectionably beautiful, Sunflowers and Puddles breathes life into any room.
