I painted these sunflowers right in my backyard. We patiently awaited as we watched them grow practically 6 inches every day, thinking any minute they would bloom. They were so fun to watch! Blossoms the size of dinner plates, chased the sun and smiled at us from the backyard. I had to go out over the course of several mornings and capture all of that happy beauty. Loaded with texture and energy, these flowers practically spring to life from the canvas!
