Sunflower Tower
10” x 18”   oil on board

This tower of a sunflower was a pleasant surprise. Rescued from a path (I dug it up and brought it home) and planted in our garden, it began to grow, and grow! It soon got so big, with so many flowers, it began to fall over. Nothing else to do but race out and paint such a beautiful and prolific plant! 

Painted on masonite board with a strong rough surface to catch the many colors of the paint, it is rich in detail. It was really a lot of fun to paint!
