Summers last breath

Walking out in my backyard I saw this looming over my neighbors fence. Only one, but what a gorgeous sunflower. I have always wanted a row of these strange giants, but I heard from another neighbor the chipmunks were also very fond of these.

I photographed and painted this in a very different style for me. I m trying to go a little more on the abstract, but not quite there. I wanted to stretch my watercolors, making them more vivid than I usually paint.

The back to school rush almost over, some already back. This means one thing, summer is a heartbeat from becoming a memory.

  1. Lovely painting. I think sunflowers are one of the most charming sights on earth. They always make me smile, as did your painting.

    I checked out your Etsy shop and loved the roses in a vase.
