Sunny Side Up Sunflower

Sunny Side Up Sunflower just popped onto the canvas behind me suddenly, after I had wiped that same canvas twice earlier. The first try, a window with climbing roses. Wipe! The second version, pink roses. Wipe, wipe! Finally, the sunflower burst forth stubbornly onto the canvas, thwarting my efforts to abandon him for roses. I have bad news for the sunflower, my goal this year is to master roses, too. I will not forget him, I promise I will visit sunflower again ad infinitum, but I do want to fill my painted gardens with more blossoms and more varieties, and continue to grow. And roses are next on the menu. I figure if I paint a thousand, I might just get one I'm happy with.

I'm rooting for the sunflower :-) I do love them...they're happy flowers...roses are moody!!! But, you know I always love what you paint!!!

Beautiful sunflower! I like the composition - the close up view. Good luck with the roses! You will master them, I'm sure. :-)

I agree with the first comment! They always make me smile. I love your irises very much too. The roses will most likely win me over too. Have a great week!

I know that no matter what you paint,,, it will be spectacular.

Becky, the sunflower is winning! : ) You are so nice, I am going to send you some donuts. xox

Thank you Miss Linda! I appreciate the positive thoughts about rose mastery, it is like climbing Everest!

Miss Becky, now that you mention irises I will be wanting to paint them next, in order to avoid roses... ; )

Tweedley, you are about the nicest pug ever. I have a feeling Santa is going to be very good to you this year cutey!
