"Yellow Dahlias" , plein air oil painting by Sharon Lynn Williams

"Yellow Dahlias" , plein air oil painting, 6x6"

This is one of my potted dahlias that I picked up for a song this spring. I hope to save and overwinter the tubers, but I have had limited success with that, so wish me luck!

I am off to Scotland on Friday for a whole month. I am taking a plein air watermedia course with my hero Stephen Quiller for 10 days in Anstruther, which is just 10 minutes from the famous St. Andrews Golf Course. Dave will meet me at the end of the course and then we will travel throughout the UK until the end of September. I will have sporadic access to the Internet while I am gone, but if you want this painting, just email me and it will be first come, first served. I hope to be able to post some of the paintings that I do while I am in Scotland as I have the ability to do so. But otherwise, I will see you at the end of September.


To purchase this, or commission your own painting, please email me.

I love the texture and especially the beautiful neutral background. That yellow really sings!
