Here is another flower using one of Saundra Lane's photo references. I said I needed practice on flowers so I started this sunflower last night - more practice. I think it is finished. I may tweak it a bit in the next day or two - I'm not sure. At any rate I thought I'd go ahead and share it with you.

For we walk by faith, not by sight--

Hi Laura - thank you! Thanks for dropping by my blog too - I took a peek at yours and you have some wonderful paintings of my favorite subject - horses.

LOVE this sunflower.
I just bought a pot of sunflowers, thinking I would paint them.... they've been sitting there two days now...
FEAR.. has stopped me... YOU have inspired me.. We'll see.. doubt I could pull it off as well as you have.
