Field of Mustard Flowers

"Field of Mustard Flowers" by Andrew Daniel
16" x 24" (40cm x 60cm) oil on wood panel
available through First Street Gallery

Every year I am struck by the amazing show of color the mustard flowers in my neighborhood display. In the past I have done small pieces to explore the idea, but this year I made a point of doing a larger painting. It was so fun apply layer after layer of intense right out of the tube yellows, layered with greens to provide depth. I'm looking forward to next year, I want to go larger!

This piece is part of a show dedicated to the theme of the Humboldt Bay at the First Street Gallery in October/November. Some of our Lost Coast Daily Painters will be represented in the show. Besides myself, there will be bay landscapes from Stock Schlueter, Kathy O'Leary and Mimi Laplant in the back gallery. In the front Gallery Cindy Hooper has 6 video installations and Mary Mallahan has a large scale ceramic model of the bay.
