Day 47

Members of our plein air group (Susquehanna Valley
Plein Air Painters) have spent the last two days
painting the sunflower fields of Ashcombe's Garden
Center. In addition to the beautiful sunflowers,
there were butterflies, bees and goldfinches and even a baby
bunny rabbit that squealed when one of our painters
walked a little too close to where he was hiding.

If you would like to see more of my work,
please visit my website or my blog. If you are
interested in purchasing any of my paintings you see
here on this blog, please contact me.

There is nothing more delightful than a field full of sunflower soldiers, heads hanging at the end of a long and sunny day of holding heads high. Beautiful work, Claire!

Love this! What is is about sunflowers that just makes a person want to smile? In my cartoon mind, I see them having conversations with each other, some leaning over so they can hear better.
