I am working on a painting of a sunflower today. Painting a sunflower is new to me…lots of that around here…I mean lots of new stuff, well and lots of painting too actually. I find it fascinating the details I miss when working with natural objects. Things I see nearly every day, but never really see see.

This particular piece is going to be in a silent auction to help defray the cost of a school trip to Italy that my son will be attending. Wish me luck that it turns out silent auction worthy!
