I know, I know - sunflowers again! But you would not believe how people are drawn to these spectacular flowers! These sunflowers, which I bought back in November, were giant ones which lasted a very long time. They just kept on looking great until in one day they finally faded. They were beautiful though, and really brightened the descent into winter darkness and frigid cold.
Now, when I am finally painting these flowers, it is bright, sunny, plus single digit temperatures, and we are on the upswing toward longer days, shorter nights, and eventually, warmer temperatures and SPRING!!! I am feeling optimistic these days as I get outside and walk my border collies... perhaps the worst temperatures and weather are behind us, and we will have a mild rest-of-the-winter. Regardless, it is just encouraging to paint these cheerful blooms.
