The Sunflower Plot
Willowgate Community Garden 
9" x 12"  oil on board
Daily Paintworks

Summer always brings out the best in each gardener's efforts at the community garden. While many people grow a variety of things in their plots, others grow a lot of just a few things. This plot seems given to sunflowers, zinnias and the remains of some artichokes.  They all fit together nicely, and begged to be painted; it was hot, but a real pleasure to stand there and paint them. This piece was started out in the garden but finished in the studio - when I went back to paint, most of the flowers had been cut down!
