As I’ve often said, sunflowers are some of my favorite flowers. Yet, most all flowers are some of my favorites, too.

My friend brought these majestic beauties. So out came my canvas and paints!

I think I love best the way the flowers follow the sun. Just watch some sunny day. They seem to always just know where the sun is.

Paul Foxton has continued to add videos to his blog. I try to paint along with his teaching. I’m having so much fun playing with colors. So I though I’d try to get the color of these little gems close to accurate. I love the way the little snowdrops frame and lead the eye into the painting. This tiny 5×7 study is a treat to remember the earliest beginning of spring.

You can be the judge. Did I hit it??
OK, so I’m not quite as good as the garden variety, but not bad as a painting.
