Sunday Is For Sunflowers
My sunflowers now stand what looks like 9 to 10 feet tall, and the flowers will soon open. This spring we have had the right about of rain and sunshine. I have never planted sunflower seeds before this spring. I got one sunflower from my neighbor last year and this spring I planted a bunch of seeds on the side of my house by the porch. The plan is to take pictures through their life cycle and create some paintings from the photos. Many artists have painted sunflowers, so why not me. My back screened porch is clean now, and my drawing table is up and ready for work. There is plenty of room to sketch and paint. All I need now is some good lighting, and I will be ready to work in the evenings. I am going to take a break from my political art, or, at least I think I am. Once I get my table saw set up, I will be ready to rock.
