Though these post as the same size, the first picture
GOLDEN 2 is larger (30"x24")
GOLDEN 1 which I started first, is 24"x20". I've been painting sunflowers for at least a year and these are the ones that are the most satisfying to me. They are based on a gaggle of sunflowers I photographed in Golden, Colorado last year in the Clear Creek History Park.

Yes, they are the same, but different!

The first one feels like an extremely hot day and everything is a bit "wilty". In the second one I can feel a hot dry wind blowing.

Thanks, Nellie, it's always fun to hear what others see in my work. I hadn't considered the temperature! But now that you mention it, I can feel it!
