Description

This painting took many layers to resolve and I'm delighted with the result. Based on Van Gogh's sunflowers (the 1888 Munich version), it went through many phases. I want this painting to be a balance of monstrous and childlike, perhaps redolent of Jim Henson's muppets rendered through Gerhardt Richter's scrapes and De Kooning's brushstrokes.
