Winged Wonders


Sunflowers are still an inspiration for my art. The sunflower sprouts are still coming up in my garden now, so I am working with a photo taken last year. In addition to the two large blossoms, I have added a couple butterflies seen at the Botanical Center and Butterfly Center in Ames. They were both incredibly bright, with black dividing the various color patterns. I think they add interest and life to the sunflowers.

I  have also added some watercolor crayon bits and pieces into the wet pigment while painting. These melted and blended nicely. Some were blurred with my fingers.
