Let It Shine Sunflowers and Larkspur was the final large demo for my three day workshop at the Jaycee Parks Center for the Arts last weekend in North Texas. Just as we were shutting up for the day, a big storm blew in and we had a break from the heat! After last summer's record heat and dry spell, this has been a very welcome, very wet summer. Here is Let It Shine created step by step to celebrate this wonderful, mild summer. Enjoy!

Step 1 - Colored vases go in first so I
can build greenery and flowers 
around it.

Step 2 - building that important foundation
of transparent undercolors.

Step 3 - almost done - last is the 
tabletop and warm green foliage.

So beautiful, Nancy!! I guess we're on the flip-side with summer this year. Excessively hot and dry. Fortunately, so far August seems a bit milder than most of our Augusts, thankfully. So ready for the cooler temps here.
