Violet Fire Sunflower
Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Violet Fire Sunflower is a bright rendition of one of my favorite bloomers - sunflowers! I grew up on an organic farm in East Texas, and sunflowers were planted throughout my parents' gardens to help attract insects off the vegetable crops. I remember standing barefoot in the cool soil, gazing up at the faces of giant sunflowers. They are such a quintessential summertime flower!
I'm just home and unpacking from three days in Louisiana, sharing painting time, prizes, fresh flowers and no shortage of giggles with some lovely ladies from Alabama, Texas, Georgia, Arkansas and Louisiana. Next stop is Fredericksburg, Texas. If we're lucky, the wildflowers will be starting to bloom - see you soon in the Hill Country!
