I love sunflowers.
Especially when they invite themselves into my yard, and then bloom like crazy for a month.
This lovely sunflower just did that, which is why I had to capture it in paint.
The painting is actually a commission, so it’s enjoying life in its new home in Greenville, South Carolina right now.
I wish we could have spent more time together…
Maybe next summer another Volunteer Sunflower will take up residence under our bird feeder. If it does, I will surely capture it in paint, and perhaps keep it my own home to enjoy its blooms all year-long.
Here’s a little clip which shows photos of this painting as it comes to life.
