"Sunflower" Acrylic on Wood, by Julianne Kinsey


acrylic on wood, by Julianne Kinsey

This is an acrylic painting of a sunflower on wood that I wanted to hang on my door. I love sunflowers, and my wedding this summer will have many sunflowers. My little art corner in my room has sunflowers decorating it, and that was my main inspiration for this piece. I call this “Welcome” because it’s a beautiful welcome into my creative space. Painting on the wood was particularly difficult for me because I had never done so before, and I had a bit of a different picture in my head, but I still love the way it came out. I’ve learned through art therapy classes in college that perfection is found in the imperfection, and it’s all about the process, not necessarily the product.
