A delightful still life featuring a bouquet of sunflower blooms arranged in a green jar with a few green apples by artist Michele Clamp. "I found the contrast between the rich green hue of the jar and the brilliance of the sunflower petals very attractive," says Michele. "I painted the flowers loosely and choppily to emphasize the tightness of the arrangement and how the blooms seem to jostle together for light. The remainder of the painting was left in broad strokes and light washes to further emphasize the richness of the flowers."

Artist Michele Clamp creates watercolor paintings mainly of New England scenes and places she has a personal connection to. "Using traditional brushes and pigments, I enjoy how the simplicity of tools allows me to grapple with the challenges of watercolor," says Michele. "The deceptive simplicity of this medium has a huge attraction for me." As a scientist, Michele worked in many interesting areas including the Human Genome Project. And in 2017, she decided to paint full-time as well as teach art lessons and conduct workshops. Michele states that an idea can take months or years to filter through her brain before sitting down to paint on her easel. In her studio, she enjoys working in peace and quiet with her blinds open to the sun and the trees outside. "As I mostly use watercolor, cleanliness is not so much of a problem," says Michele. "And my husband keeps me on my toes by periodically asking 'Why is there paint on the ceiling?'"
