Sunflower In Ball Jar

"Sunflower In Ball Jar"
9" x 12" oil on gallery wrap canvas 

This sunflower painting was a joy to work on.   I've had the blue Ball canning jar for a long time, but this was my first time to paint it.   The sunflower I actually found already cut and abandoned when I checked my Post Office Box one day.   I knew right away I would paint it and use the Ball jar as a vase.

Below are photos of this painting's development.

Thank you for viewing my art !


  1. Love your step-by-step, Carol. The transparency of your jar is especially wonderful.

  2. Thank you, Julie. I struggled a little with the transparency of the jar, so your comment is so encouraging.
