SUNFLOWER SHADOWS





A sunflower painted wet-in-wet.  Hard to keep the petals loose but I'm happy with the rest of it.

My intention was to make you feel the heat of the day and the strong sunlight creating shadows.

These blooms scream toughness to me and your bold colours convey that well

Katherine, it's hot everywhere in the US right now, isn't it? They keep showing that map and the heat index and it's all red red red!! Got to cool down soon - melting.....
