Saving Grace Sunflowers

Saving Grace Sunflowers has been percolating in a state close to finished for over a month. I finished it today, brightening the shadows with a mixture of viridian and transparent oxide red, and then adding in some deep shadowed greenery into the wet background.

I wear a few hats, just so life stays interesting, and one of them is for pug rescue. A little pug in Southlake, Texas, escaped out an open gate 2 days ago. He had surgery a week ago, and his family was frantic all night searching for him. This morning, he was found safe and sound. This painting is a bit of a thank you note to the angels who brought Rocky home, to his family, where he belongs.
