Sunflowers - Again

I can't yet leave the sunflowers and the challenge of painting them. Despite the heat, the farmers market was filled with sunflowers and their big, bold, bright faces encouraged me to return again to my paintbrushes and try to capture that wonderful petaled sunshine!

We had a cooler day yesterday and a welcome back breakfast for our faculty. Classes will begin in less than two weeks, so the college is abuzz with activity after a relatively quiet summer with less students on campus.

I'm readying for another painting exhibition at one of my favorite state parks in Durham. I have four walls to fill and will at their Photography Museum for six weeks. They've asked for labels on each painting that describe the painting so today's the day to begin getting all that information together.

Stay cool today!

Oh Lin this is doubly gorgeous. It's so vibrant and the yellows against the blue-greens is perfect. I love love love the way you've again done the receding foliage. BRAVO!

Congrats on yet another exhibit!!!

Hugs,
