Blossom Ballet Sunflowers is drying on the easel in Flower Mound Studio this evening, while a late summer thunderstorm is cooling off the temperatures outside. It has been a long, hot summer and I am ready for the fall, though I will miss the last of the flowers when they go. I love painting sunflowers - and am especially happy when I'm able to capture their imperfections. Petals falling and ragged and bedraggled world weary heads hanging down, but just when I think the sunflowers in my back yard are done, another new face opens the next morning. Maybe they're getting their second wind!
