Sunflowers in my Garden

Early June and my sunflowers are just poking out of the ground. Hard to believe they will make it to 8 feet tall in a very few days really. Plein air painting is a passion and I plan to sketch my sunflowers at every stage this year rather than waiting until this drooping head stage when I say to myself “Oh my word, I best take a photo of the sunflowers before it is too late!”

'Heavy Head'

At the rate the rain is gracing the valley, the 'poking out of the ground' stage may be the only sketch you get! Love the heavy-head feeling in this piece, Eileen, especially against the 'weightlessness' of the leaves!
