It IS Summer
...and so far, I hadn't painted any sunflowers. Well, in my world you paint sunflowers in Summer--it is just something you do. I am grateful that my friend Nancy lulled me out of the complacency of forgetting to paint sunflowers and brought me some when she came for dinner a couple of days ago. This is a note card painting, so it is small, but I kind of like it. I am not thrilled with how I did the "signature/logo" in the lower right, and will give that a little more thought. It seems to work with this composition, though. There were actually five sunflowers, but I focused on my favorite three. This was kind of fun, and I loved going with a darker value background. Thanks, Nancy. I needed to paint those sunflowers! I'm not limited to just one sunflower painting in the season, but at least I did one.
