"Sunflower" - Pastel - 5x7 - January 31, 2013
Sunflower - I love sunflowers.   When I first started painting I painted a group of sunflowers and framed it.   I loved it!!    I gave it to a dear friend who was retiring several months later.    I've tried several times to duplicate that painting and failed.   My daughter loves sunflowers and has asked me to paint them.   I decided that I would do something different.    This is the second of a group of three 5x7 paintings that I am doing to group and frame in one frame together.    Tomorrow I work on the final painting.

Sunflowers are one of my favorite flowers.   I'm working on a set of three different sunflower paintings to include in a collage for my daughter.
