“Sunflowers & Daffodils," by Barb Bomier.
Red Cliff artist Barb Bomier is one of 13 artists partcipating in the upcoming Red Cliff Studio Tour, taking place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
"I’m a plein air painter, but I’m also a wimp when comes to being cold," Bomier said. "In the winter I frequently set up a still life, paint looking out the window, or work from a photograph. In mid-February when I saw the first season’s daffodils and sunflowers at the store, I couldn’t resist. They really cheered me up in the dead of winter. I especially like the shapes of the daffodils and the reflected light on them. I couldn’t let them die without painting them. I started out with acrylics, then finished with oils, on heavy watercolor paper."
