After a couple of painting sessions mixing soft and subtle "whites," I had to let loose and get some COLOR out of my system.  : )  With this piece, my intention was to capture the personalities of the flowers as they turned toward the sun with their curling and wispy petals. It was as though they were saying farewell to the season, not really wanting it to leave. 

Ironically, the day after I painted these in my garden, the sunflowers were gone. Just the stems remained of their good-bye song. A four-legged critter had come along and had it for breakfast.
