Sunflowers- a watercolor WIP



These flowers are coming along.  I think another day or so of working on details and they should be about ready for a new home.

This has been quite the week with President Obama taking office! We wheeled a t.v. into our staff room on Tuesday morning so that we could all watch the ceremony of his swearing-in to office. I have never seen so many expectations placed on one person before. I think he has a HUGE task ahead of him, especially with the economy and world affairs in such trouble. As I was watching the news last night, I was surprised that the number of campaign promises he made are already being tracked! On his first day in office! Good grief - give the guy a chance to settle in!

However, it was great to see so many supporters willing to back him and his tough policies up, no matter what the personal cost. I wish him the best as he begins what will surely be known as the most difficult of all presidential terms ever.

Back to sunflowers and paintings. If you are interested in this painting, please contact me:

This painting is coming along beautifully! The progress is so interesting to watch.

I'm really excited to see what details you put in, this piece already looks so close to finished, it should be breathtaking when you lay your brush down and call it completed!

Hey Michelle,

I am enjoying this painting also... there will be a few more details in the stems and the petals - more color laid in at the base of the petals and to separate them from one another...
