Inspired by the natural beauty around him, as well as the inspiration he derives from family and friends, Darnell translates his duty into paintings with ” soothing vibes”. I choose imagery that makes me feel centered and calm … what remains consistent in all my work is the light. It represents energy, spirit and forces we do not see but feel are there all the same..” Though best known for his paintings of peonies, which we have translated to needlepoint canvas, his love of flowers and crisp detail and passionate talent is also seen in these gorgeous sunflowers. Measures 17.5″ x 26″ on 14, 16 or 18 mesh mono deluxe needlepoint canvas. We are partial to silk threads for this gorgeous canvas and will be happy to select and add all necessary hues to complete.
