2016 Day 5

I really didn't think I was going to get this done or that it would turn out as well as it did.
Sunflower
"Sunflower" is on another homemade canvas board, 5 x 7 x 3/4"; painted with acrylics even on the edges so no frame is needed. I used one of the cards I did during the September challenge as a reference for the flower and sort of made up the old barn.

Now I have to put my mind to figuring out a subject for tomorrow!

  3. Love this painting, the textures, the sunflower - aren't they just the happiest flowers and our finches just adore them too. This has such a nice country mood. Addie's right you nailed the boards.

    1. Thanks Nelbia. I can't seem to grow sunflowers so I have to rely on photos. A friend had some this past summer that were over 10 ft but my birds have to be content with seeds in a feeder.
