More sunflowers

Working from photos of sunflowers taken at Sauvie Island in the summer keeps some brightness alive. I've painted several of the same scene, and traded a painting to a friend for a colorful handmade quilt. The smaller one came first, then I needed a larger one for her bedroom wall. Took a photo in progress while it was still loose and unfinished. Somehow that looks more like the natural scene, the way clouds move across the sky and the feel of wind.
