Sad news of the Sunflowers.
We usually grow sunflowers in this spot beside the house next to the peach tree. They were all coming up nicely and getting ready to flower and then....we agreed to babysit a puppy and a HUGE black lab. They have systematically torn down almost every sunflower out there. I did manage to make a pretty arrangement and we do have this one still standing. This is a volunteer sunflower that grew up right outside of the studio.
Another note: I am working on a comission for a big vase with a coral reef on it and a mermaid. These are the sketch tiles for the project.
